Greetings, TechWr-lers...

(cross posted to Tech Comm list)

FYI - this comes to me third-hand, so by reading the advertisement, you'll
learn everything that I know. As it could be a plum job for a telecommuter,
I figured someone on this list might be interested, or know someone who
would be...

Take care, everyone - and have a wonderful weekend!!
