For us it was finding Perl programmers that were actually living on the 
same planet. They might have been geniuses but they couldn't read a job 
spec to save their lives. We are a web development company based in 
Brighton so if you don't want to be a web developer or work in Brighton 
you would assume that you wouldn't actually apply for the job. You'd 
think wouldn't you.

You'd be wrong, Perl recruitment started to look like a complete waste 
of effort.
