Seeking employees for programming dept

First let me introduce my self. I am the head of research and
development at a company here in Tulsa, OK. called Symbolix Inc.
My name is Thomas L. Gross, but you amy call me Tom if you so wish.

Ok on to what I am writing you about. I am looking for a
developer or two that could help our team by developing a driver for
a three dimensional Multiple Chemical printer. We are currently a
little ways off from the final building stage, however the specs for
the prototype should be finalized in about 2 or 3 months so as to
enable the drivers development. We are going to need two software
packages to complete our task.

The first is a driver to communicate the images from the
computer to the printers circuitry. This should be simple for our
prototype that will be reworked at a later date or the rights for
the circuit design will be purchased from the owners before going
into production, so that out of the way we intend to use a already
existing circuit and motor system to employ our printer head thus
making it much easier to create the first working model for the
programmers working for us as well as providing many other short
cuts. But this is only a short cut to save money on this experiment.

The other package needed would be a small unit that would
change a Lightwave (copyright Newtek inc.) object or other similar, three dimensional, point and polygon, object with a surface and material value to a series of two dimensional slices in which each material would be represented as a specific color for the driver to interpret to the printer's circuitry thus telling the printer head which material to lay down (ie. black or #000000=carbon, grey or #888888=silica,red or #ff0000=copper, and so on and so forth) let me know if you might be able to help and what financial compensation you would require for your services.
recomendations for others that you think would be interested would considered as well.
Thank you for your time,
Head of research
Symbolix Inc.
Thomas L. Gross
you can contact me about this at morphious69@hotmail.com

Call me a cynic, but this really screams out "Vapourware!" to me... or at least "Scam!!"

Why? Doesn't every company hire its programmers from a teen site? ;o)

And why does every head of <whatever> of a company have a hotmail address?

Probably because the financial situation of the company doesnt permit them to have a website...

Wonder if billgates@hotmail.com exists!!!!!

How many of these posts hav we had ... a dozen , two. They are all pointless, why even bother answering. These people come here to exploit you :: they know totally 0 about programming.

-Vlad , a pity such posts waste peoples time.

Because this is social interaction!

I have no reason to believe that this is a scam, and if I thought I could do what he is asking, I would definately have contacted him.

I hate it when people come to this website and create accounts just so they can write this bullsh**!

That I agree with, we should hang a big NO SOLICITING sign on the front door. Or, we could create another forum for job offers only, although there aren't many of them

I think we can all tolerate the one message every few months that no one is interested in.
