    Why would a company looking for someone with such extensive qualifications post the job on an online forum?

    Uh, I think office hours for this would start at 0600. You'll have to switch 24 fps thinking to 30. :)

    I somewhat agree, but goodluck to them finding somebody anyways. Cisco certification? I laughed at that course as hard as the MSCE course.

    Maybe because this forum is considered to be one of the most serious Mac forums.

    totally cool
    most serious...hmmmm

    that isnt saying much.

    if that guy can find somebody to do that job through his own channel instead of posting at a rumor site, he'd better start looking for a replacement for himself.

    note to guy looking for worker: try highend2d or highend3d .com
