perhaps a little too much honesty (was: RE: Job Posting (.04KReward!) Jr. Linux Admin + Windows Support)

Nice quoting... Kudos there. Bad trimming. *smacks wrists*

Eh, we're all friends in this community. I don't think Stuart was too out of
line here and was terribly polite about it all.

How about this: Don't worry so much about it. :)

Truth be told, we need (a lot) more qualified people in the market right now.
Iodynamics is going to be looking to fill some more technical positions soon
and just about everyone I've talked to (casually) who would be qualified
already has a job they love making as much or more than we can pay.

We just filled a sales position and that took 4-5 months to find the right

Seems it would be good if the UGs were able to recruit some more would-be
evangelists and help them get up to snuff.
