SPUG: Urgent Contract Jobs, telecommuting

I spoke to this California guy on the phone this morning; he called
my 800 number, and proceeded to speak at lightning speed about their
desperate need for immediate help from good Perl programmers.

I tried to brush him off, telling him that my company primarily does
Perl training, and the only programmers we know live in Seattle, so they
wouldn't be interested.  His frantic retort was "not even if the money
was astronomical?"  So apparently they are in dire straits, and willing
to pay big bucks for programmers who can start immediately, telecommuting

I spoke to two different guys in this conversation, both exhibiting the
same panicky vibes of acute desperation.  Personally, if I were going
to get involved with the likes of them, I'd be asking for a sizeable
retainer up front - who knows, maybe they don't manage their cash-flow
any better than their programming staff!

 My name is Dan Vigil. I spoke to you on the phone earlier today. We are in
need of senior level PERL programmers for a  multitude of projects we are
working on. I cannot immediately provide the specs on the projects, but I
wanted to drop you a line with my contact info in case you have anyone in
mind that might help.
