<unofficial statement>

Sorry in advance if I am insulting anyone with this.  None of my 
cow orkers are on this list so I am ad-libbing a little.

Instead of "programmer wanted", should be "draconian sub master wanted".
Tired of the 'race-o-da-rat'?  Wanna buy a decent house for under $100k?
(I got a 2400sq ft 4bd 2ba for 52k).  There are no latte carts on every
corner, but you can get one if you know where to look, and there is one on
campus.  DSL is available here.  Working for the university has a number
of cool benefits.  Working on your personal projects during work hours
using work equipment is ok (as long as your not trying to run a dot com on
the university servers).  Need to come in late, leave early, take a 2 hour
lunch, its ok (mostly).  We have an OC3.  I have been told there is stuff
to do here, but since I never leave the house, I can't verify it, but
indianapolis is only 90 mins drive. You get an actual office, not a
cubicle.  It takes me 10 minutes to drive to work.  Still working on that
degree?? classes are practically free to staff (like $5/credit or
something like that, last semester cost me $118.) You can take classes
during work hours.  You are expected to make it up, but its a judgement
call (you code all the time anyway right??).  Enough of my random blabing,
on to the official announcement.
