How did you get the assignment (sent a resume, fax, email; made a call; recommended by a friend; referred by a client, etc.)? I posted my resume on; they contacted me.

Did a time difference affect your work? Not so much. I would submit things during the day on the East coast US and usually receive a response the following day during the evening.
