There is a way to balance the aesthetics, and throw in the… Continue

Read your post titled "Image Library...". We are also using Portfolio and about six months ago, we started posting pictures to Flickr. I have a few questions about your migration and process. When you have some time, could you shoot me an email?

Thoughts on "part-time work from home" for a web developer?

This isn't a posting for a job (but hopefully that will be coming soon!)We are looking to hire a new web developer, and have gotten the OK from HR to offer this with the possibility of working from home a few days of the week, and in the office the other days.
