Bryan,

We had it posted for a little while on Craigslist and Monster a few weeks back, but the posting has expired. We're looking in some other areas -- like here -- to see whether we can get some other candidates into the mix. I will ask about reposting it. But if you'd like to post what I e-mailed out originally onto the CICM blog, then put my e-mail down as a contact, that would be fine. If not, I'll check again on posting it.

Dan

Might have better luck posting it somewhere like

where it's more likely a good web dev will come across it.

Hi Dan,

I'm helping to run the Hacks/Hackers job board, and could totally hook
you up if you'd like. Just let me know.
