    ...but it's one heck of a commute for a temporary job:
    I've left off the identifiers but if anyone out there is in that particular area of the US and wants to know more, PM me and I'll send you the entire contents of the email.

    Oh dear - it's always hard when you see stuff like that!

    But one thing caught my eye - SCO? When that company looks as if it is about to disappear up its own tailpipe? :biggrin

    No. They found a private investor with $100 million to continue funding them.....

    Edit:

    Must have been a while since you've read anything on Groklaw.... ;)

    Interesting. I didn't see this one, but I've been getting contacted by quite a few recruiters lately too, and it's been mostly Linux stuff. A few of the requisite recruiters for MS too, but on the whole mostly Linux.

    The Linux job market is definitely growing. Funny how people can make money off of free stuff ain't it? :twisted:

    Nope. Hadn't ever heard of it before.

    I'll have to take a look at it though.

    Actualy - no they didn't. They found $5million - with the possibility of more if certain conditions were met. The consensus seems to be that they won't be met.

    See here for an interesting comment on the story.

    Harry.

    Nice find, Harry. I hadn't seen that before. That's good news.
