Heh. Three or four times, I followed up on one gig 30 miles from my house.
Each time, I got an email from "Sampath" asking for my hourly rate. The
first time, I responded with the rate. The successive emails I got from
him/her asked the same information. Each time I responded with, "See my
previous response".

I think they've just got a program that sends out an automated response, and
there's no one home on the other end.

This company is called Avondale Technologies in Massachusetts.

They do not show a phone number. Interesting, yes?

The gigs are out there. I get a dozen calls and e-mails a week from
recruiters (mostly Indians whom I cannot understand). Most of these are in
California or New England, too far from home for me to consider.

At present I cannot accept any work. I am recovering from surgery and
cannot walk or drive and cannot leave the house for work. My last gig was
remote but they are hard to find. As there is no work in Montgomery, I must
go where there is work. I should be able to start looking by May.

But this remains the weirdest market I have ever seen. There is nobody
available but there are no jobs. You would think if there were a storage of
programmers you would have a lot of companies looking or vis versa. A lot of
programmers would mean no jobs. Instead there is a storage of programmers
but still no jobs available.

We have companies here looking for months and into years but you almost
never see jobs.
