Would YOU Want To Work With THIS Man?!

You know it had to happen -- a new opening in the best support organization in the world. No, that's not a snark -- it's the honest truth as I see it. If you'd like to a) work for Perforce, b) live near Alameda, CA (or will), and c) think that working with Yo is a cool idea, send me your resume.
