Yeah, you're right. I'm going to have a difficulty finding any sort of 'guru' when the budget is low. But, I think, as you pointed out, the wording on the job advert is important here. I guess I need to stress that we're looking for a web-Perl developer that has experience delivering a database backend site.

Good point about the 'sysadmin-perl' and web-perl guy. There's a definite distinction and I need to clarify that. Not being too stereo-typical, but I am likely to be looking at an older person when looking for a sysadmin-perl-guru (who has no idea on how to connect web to database to perl)?
