I live in the country (Canada) with the cheapest over-the-phone
Internet access in the world, according the THE ECONOMIST (they
include the cost of the local phone call).  As a result, perhaps I
place too little value on my online time; in any case, I have no
objection to goods-and-service announcements (or job postings) that
meet the following criteria:

1) they have strong relevance to DSSSL;
2) they are technical and factual in nature;
3) they are short; and
4) they are not repeated for the same release/conference/course/position.

I would not like to see anonymous job announcements or job
announcements from head-hunting firms.

All the best,
