My name is Marianne Dove.  I'm a recruiter for Google.  Google is
currently seeking several Unix/Linux experts for a couple of positions in
Mountain View, CA or Dublin, Ireland.  I was wondering if it would be
possible for you to post this information or let your members know about
opportunity.    If so, I've pasted the 2 job descriptions below.

If it's not possible, I understand.  I don't mean to crowd your technical
list with a job posting, but this is such a great opportunity, and Google
is seeking the very best Engineers from around the world and I feel there
must be dozens of linux experts out there.  I'm hoping I can find some of
them on your list via my posting.  Thank you for your consideration and
