I am not sure I understand your point ?

Mine was to state the things  as I understand them..
the piece of my post you copied in..and to offer suggestions
the pieces you didn't copy in :(

Eg.. there are sites.. they do have a apparent ability to attract
companies advertising jobs, and that perhaps LA could take advantage
of the already huge dbs out there with a little coding ?

I was not in any way putting down the LA job db.. just that Pia's
original post on the subject was about making it more visable and
more useful for *nix people.. 

I made some suggestions  about how that could be improved as that
was what I thought Pia was asking for..

Now on to your mail :)

Again great..but can you give details of jobs in the db in 2002 or 2003 ?
More recent figures would be good to those of us looking for work :)
