Gabriel, I have talked with my tech group regarding your resume, background, experience and how that matches up with our current customer projects. Unfortunately, the type of work we are currently performing is all database-driven primarily in SQL 7 and Oracle. Also the team felt they could handle our current work load, and that there is not be enough paid work in the pipeline to justify adding another member to the team, at this time.

I will keep you in mind as Votenet advances and recontact you if I feel our circumstances change such that we could afford to bring you on board and offer you a challenging opportunity. Regards, Glen

So much for friends in high places. Skip Bafalis, when asked for a favor, reached not so deep into his deep back pockets to dredge up Glen Hughlette's position as a maker and breaker of talents great and small. A wizened, apodyopsic sculptor of men, and women, a Constantin Brâncuși, I'm sure. And of late, buried in the current technology bust. These two neighbors, passing as friendly, both well-married, and let's face it, cash-cushioned captains of industry...whoops, I'm sorry, but until my keyboard gets fixed after a spill, let's gorge ourselves on a wonderful menu from a favored Capitol Hill restaurant and eclectic western-style danceria and theater named Sheridan's, so very owned and operated by the local gay mafia. A promising venue that unfortunately only made the effort for eight months or so, but was always packed when we put on our dancing boots to delight ourselves in public...

In a roomful of competitive talkers, are you the unrepentant tachyphagiac? Regardless of the hour of our splendid visitation, if fast eaters can only dream in unrequited syllables, this menu is cloud mine...
