BUT -- that vehicle (jobs at clug) does not cater well/at all to short-term
contract or one-off jobs that might well suit/interest "work free"
persons (incl. myself). Personally, I am interested in any kind of
telecomute-style support or development, but not willing to move back to
CT from Rheenendal -- I'd rather grow veggies for a living than move
back to the city.
If no other solution presents itself, I would be willing to host mailing
lists/cvs/website/wikis/whatever, but it is on pathetic (analogue
leased-line) bandwidth unless others can help me pay for US-based
hosting/bandwidth (already in place, but costs $).
