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

If you have questions about it and want to talk offline, please feel
free to contact me.

        I can also walk on water and charge only $780/hour.  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?  Get real.
