Pardon the interruption...
I completely spaced, and forgot to post this to the guild...which is
probably one of the better locations to post:)

Anyway, Picnik is growing and we could use another person.  I'd prefer
that resumes go to jobs at picnik.com just make sure that the proper
people see them.  Feel free to direct questions to me.
