To start with I am not a recruiter just looking for talented PHP
developers to join my team.
Secondly I am trying to understand why you (Daevid) think that it is
acceptable to try and tarnish the name of my company when you don't even

brands and award winning user centered websites with superior web 2.0
technologies. We conduct online marketing to drive traffic and generate
conversions." and "Cyber-Duck's ethos is that every interaction should
a meaningful purpose. For our clients this means that we focus on
