Hi there -- I'm a web programmer at a company called Second Story
Interactive here in Portland.  I'm new to this mailing list, although I've
been programming in Perl for a few years now.  I have to confess that
I actually signed up specifically to post a job opening, although I look
forward to following the list from now on as well.

Our company has a job opening and I thought that people on the list
might be interested to hear of it. It's not specifically a Perl position,
but rather a position that requires a flexible programmer who is willing
to learn new languages and technologies as projects demand them.
If you know anyone who might be interested please pass the information
