A bit of harsh advice: when posting to a technical mailing list about a 
job you're trying to fill, at least pretend to know how to use the list 
you're posting to.  No amount of "I just get the list in digest and 
didn't know" will excuse it.  You're either moving too fast to catch the 
mistake or you just aren't thinking about what you're doing.  Either 
way, it's probably going to be a major turn-off for any potential hires 
that see it.
