Hey guys and gals, 

I realize the positions I posted weren't screaming Python, but I do want
to let you know that: 

1) I wanted to get the local word out before I made the globe aware. 
2) I only post jobs to Baypiggies when I have a local positions to post.
I don't know about the rest of the recruiting population. 
3) I received interest from around 10 people so far from this list. 

By the way, has anyone noticed that www.python.org is down?  I've been
trying to post a different (PA) Python job there for 3 days to no avail.

Have a nice weekend.  

Thank you, 

Beau J. Gould

I know that we have relaxed our rules for some time because quite a  
few of us needed work. However, this has already become abusive. For  
example, this particular job posting only mentions "Perl and Shell  
Scripting, other languages (Java, Python), etc. welcome." Python is  
clearly not a high priority for this position.

I make the motion to reinstate our previously effective policies with  
regard to recruiter restrictions posting to this list.
