I would prefer a long-term position if possible, and it would have to be a remote/telecommute position.
I was going to contact you.. but after reading your blog, id rather not.
Programmers blogs should be on things related to thier potential clients... not their political, racial or economic opinions.
Just thought you should know why a small business owner didn't hire you
Well, with all due respect, I would not want to work for someone who has a problem with my political, racial, or economic opinions. The site was not necessarily built for clients, it has always been a personal blog.
