RSS, is just another distraction mostly.  I don't use it.

Seriously, the Smalltalk market is so small that you can pretty much find all available ops in the US by watching vwnc, squeak, and getting onto Precision's mailing list.  I'm not really seeing a reason to change that.  

The problem with websites is they tend to accumulate a lot of out of date listings and nobody cleans them up.

Experienced Smalltalk developer	Smalltalk		Sacramento, CA <http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Sacramento%2C%20CA> 	Contract		Name your price		Robert Half Technology	groups.google.com <http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.smalltalk/browse_thread/thread/c7c23cb910608fe0/da996a72264003ee#da996a72264003ee> 	From the posting on comp.lang.smalltalk: “...Name your price, but they
are looking for a senior level if not "expert" on smalltalk. They have
programmers that are working with it now and are familiar, but they
would like to have a very senior level person on staff. ...” 1/12/07 JTS.	8 February 2007	

Is this really still open?  February 2007?  As time goes on these will accumulate like cruft and the resource gets less good.  I mean, try searching Monster or Dice for Smalltalk gigs - a lot of listings that are ancient pop up.  

I prefer to see the fresh listings on the mailing list as they are posted.  I have a much higher success rate that way.  The same is true for scoring Cocoa jobs BTW.  I've scooped several decent gigs off the Cocoa developers list, but never connected on one that I found through conventional job postings.

	So you aren't subscribing to anything via RSS either?  There are RSS
	feeds on this site, including some very specialized entries.
	I mean, if you're not even watching RSS, you make my old-school biases look
