Hi Hedley, I'm not sure why you responded so vehemently to this, though I do understand, and agree in principle, that contract part-time jobs can be and often are detrimental to the worker. That isn't always the case, though. Some people, myself included for the last 10-15 years, like to have a shorter work week, as we are equally or more involved in other parts of our lives. Speaking for myself, I am able to do all of the tasks involved in this job and more, but don't have a desire to do it for even 30 hours a week---not because the company is a bad place to work (in fact, I enjoy it quite a bit), but because I like the rest of the work activities in my life. There are others out there who also prefer this, and for whom it would be a good match, as it has been for others.
If you have questions about it and want to talk offline, please feel free to contact me.

As it happens, I have used FM since v. 3.0 on Sun OpenLook, Solaris, HP-UX, Macintosh, and Windows, wrote UNIX scripts to capture and automatically size screen shots, have about 30 FM plug-ins, including IXgen, IndexRef, etc., and have used mif2go to generate online help and HTML. But if you imagine that I or anyone else with similar skills are slaveys that can be turned on and off like a tap, you are making a big mistake. You truly deserve anybody who goes to work for you on the conditions you propose. Ever consider that people might be doing some other work for someone else in the 10-15 hours per week beyond your 30 hours? Are they going to drop that and come in whenever at your whim?
