Hi folks,

I concur w/ Asheesh.  I looked at the greatschools.net site and they are a non-profit.  

My experience has been that non-profits and small businesses try to minimize costs as much as possible.

Also no surprise that greatschools.net would be using open source (PHP/MySQL) on their web site...

On the other hand, they might be looking for someone to help them with an 
existing web app that they need to squeeze lots of performance out of 
while maintaining good reliability.  So maybe they need another developer 
for that who really *knows* MySQL, their database engine of choice.

Maybe they aren't a huge company, so they need someone with just the right 
skills match for the few but specific tasks they need done.

Sounds to me like you're reacting a little strongly, Adrien.  I won't 
claim to truly know what they want this person for, but the position 
sounded reasonable.
