I MAY have an opportunity to hand off a small/medium project that you might be interested in. My time is simply maxed out, and instead of continuing to be insane and fool myself into thinking I can do it, I want to toss it to someone who might be able to use some work. The customer is in a bit of a bind, and they are very good people. More work might come out of this, I don't know.
If I had to guess, it's likely a 3 month job. It might be less, I don't know.
You must know FORTRAN. It would be very good if you knew something about DEC VMS. If you are interested, please email me. If you are REALLY interested, include something about yourself in terms of credentials. Please expect to have some references checked. Why? Because this customer are good people - they pay their bills on time.
If you are a recruiter with candidates, just don't. It's not worth your time.
I consider programming languages like riding a bike. Once you do it enough, the FORTRAN comes back. If you are currently doing FORTRAN, so much the better.
The opportunity is on the West Coast of the US, and it involves a manufacturing system system that drives a CNC machine. You may need to travel to Mexico to the factory to see things in operation.
I'm not going to kid you - the code base is a mess. Trying to figure out how to get started in it can be painful, but I've been working with the code on and off for 10 years. I will be available for consultation to get you started and to answer questions as they occur.

I am developing a web application since last 6 months, which is now ready to launch.
It's a Project Management System hosted on Windows Azure.
I think it is very useful and I am very excited. But before I start marketing, I would like to get your first impression.
Would you like to evaluate my application on your spare time? Please let me know, what do you think. I will be very grateful to share the details.
I will use the Code Project Email functionality to send you the details, if you have disabled that feature, please email me your contact information using the same Email functionality, and I will revert back.
Thanks! Old Thread on The Lounge I am developing a web application since last 6 months, which is now ready to launch.
I think it is very useful and I am very excited. But before I start marketing, I would like to get first impression of people, who's opinion matters to me. (I have list of 15 Code Project Members)
Now the question is, Is it consider as spam, if I contact them using Code Project 'Email' functionality? I promise, I will only contact these 15 members and only once. All I need is few lines of their first impression. (Because I do not have any other way of contacting them. and I am the only person working on this.)

You might want to post this on the Collaboration/Beta Testing forum. That is the appropriate place for a question like this.
If you email a forum member uninvited, they may well be hostile, and this will give a negative opinion of your product regardless of how good it is. Indeed, you may find that some of the members you want to contact have disabled email notifications.

I'm with Pete on this one, Collaboration is the place for this. However, if you want my opinion then I'll happily give it a kick.
