  • -- P.S. The real WTF is the forum software, which insists on mangling formatting. It was not all italics and bold. sigh



  • I get "offers" like this all the time. Small-peanuts recruiters who can't spell or just generally suck copy/paste the job requirements and spam anyone with a resume online.

     

    I love how the requirement for Mootools adds the url for Mootools, just in case the guy who knew Mootools didn't know it.

    That's not so bad, since the Mootools requirement is just "a huge plus." It indicates that you'll probably be working with Mootools,
    so if you don't know it you'll probably want to have a look before you decide if you're interested in the job.



  • mOOTools

    "mootools is a very compact, modular, Object-Oriented javascript framework. Its unique design makes it extremely crossbrowser, easy to use, and a snap to extend with your own code. It comes with a choice of more than fifteen scripts, plugins and add-ons, including Effects, based on (moo.fx) Ajax, based on (moo.ajax), Dom Navigator, based on (moo.dom), Drag and Drop, Sortable lists, cookies Manager and many more. All the previous moo scripts have been made better, reorganized and extended to fully take advantage of the new OO architecture. One of the big differences is The Element Extension: mootools makes it possible for you to extend HTML elements with your own methods, to make your life easier and your coding style way cooler."

    "way cooler..."

    zomg 

    Well, this IS an OSS project.

     



  • I especially like the phrase "large-scale high-performance backbends".  Makes it sound like you're applying for a spot on the Olympic Gymnastics team.
