I didn't say pure pascal programmers with no other skills. most pascal
programmers know databases, Assembly, and C. They also usually know at least one
scripting language such as PHP.

I plan to hire/pay Pascal programmers at some point for future commercial
projects.  Who will I hire? Probably the folks that have worked with me on open
source projects before. If not hiring per hour - I mean contract jobs too. Or
people who I've found helpful on a mailing list. People even get jobs by
visiting wiki's.. a few people have gotten jobs off c2 wiki and others. It's all
about networking isn't it? Lots of linux guru's get hired off by microsoft
simply by starting up yet another linux distribution. (sorry to the fellow at
gentoo, who now does not work for microsoft).
