I agree that the list is not innundated with job postings, so it hasn't been a problem. This particular listing just happened to press my hot button. Todd Huss has posted a clarification to the job requirements. Still, I get very turned off when a company seems to have a well defined set of skill/experience requirements, but they don't bother to post a salary range. In my experience, not posting a salary range means "we want to hire someone at as low a salary as we can negotiate". It is also a good idea to post a salary range to avoid wasting peoples' time.<br><br>Regarding this job posting in particular, they may have a better chance finding someone if they concentrate on the South Bay (where a lot of folks who actually live in San Francisco work). Companies like Yahoo use a lot of MySQL, and someone at that type of company is likely tired of being a cubicule drone and spending three hours a day commuting. Also, I personally meet at lot of Postgres people in the Bay Area,
but I can't remember the last time I've met someone who works with MySQL; this may be because the Bay Area is a big BSD stronghold.<br><br><br><b><i>jim stockford <firstname.lastname@example.org></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> <br> Rick's point was taken seriously.
