For real - I'm helping a company find 2 developers on very short notice for a few weeks of work with very good pay. They've got a crisis and noboby competent to handle it. It's not great work, but it's probably exciting, and it pays well. I'm essentially doing them a personal favor by trying to find two great people on extremely short notice.
The reasons behind this are complex/crazy, and I'll give you all the details if you're interested. The project is estimated (by me) at 3-6 weeks of work, full-time (at least), for 2 developers plus a support geek (who is already hired), starting just as soon as you can start work. (Tomorrow would be good.) The company is in Columbus but it wouldn't be strictly necessary for you to be here.
* Gets things done
* Good at debugging / figuring out problems
* Communicates well
* Working knowledge of:
** Visual Basic
** SQL Server
** Telephony experience is a plus
...in that order :)
If it helps, this is work that I'd take if I could find some way to put my real job on hold.
If you're interested, please send me an email or call me as soon as possible. If you don't know how to contact me, please find somebody who does and get them to refer you - it's way better (from my point of view) if I know you or if you come with a recommendation from someone I trust.
I'll be doing the interviewing for this job.
Did I miss anything? Let me know.
I've also posted this job at LinkedIn.

I dunno if you guys are down with channel 101 (the web programming channel where the lonely island - the guys behind "The Chronicles of Narnia" for SNL got their start). But some of the shows are pretty decent.
"Yacht Rock" is freakin' great.
Its a "Documentary" about the career starts of Michael McDonald, the Doobie Brothers and Kenny Loggins... but its a DRAMA. Hilarious.
I also recommend: "Laser Fart." Which is funnier than the name would lead you to believe. Basically its a spoof of superhero Movies/TV Shows.
And if you are really into it... check out "The 'Bu". Its the guys from the Lonely Island spoofing "The OC" very funny, too.
Skip Episodes 9, 10 and 11. They were made by some other guys after the Lonely Island troup left for SNL, and they are pure shit.
Other than that, poke around. The basic premise is: anyone can submit a show (a "pilot"). A crowd watches all the accepted submissions. If they like the pilot(if it gets voted in the top 5) it get put in "Prime Time" (in other words they ask them to make another). If they don't like it its a Failed Pilot... they don't ask you back. After you are in Prime Time, you get voted on for every submission (one show every month). If you get voted out or don't make a show for the month, you get cancelled. Neat concept. Apparently, they asked by FOX to do this for REAL television.
