It depends what kind of people we are trying to recruit, and what tasks we need done. I think we need help with infrastructure more than anything. We need a PHP developer to help us jump to Drupal 8 (or whatever PHP CMS we pick).

Use a corporate recruitment tool. Haiku is almost ready for Beta. That means it's time to start thinking about professional support staff. Which we don't have the money to pay for. I neglected to say that the three corporate recruitment tools that I gave as examples (Qandidate, TalentSquare and RecruiterBox) are free to use for the basic usage. Qandidate and TalentSquare only ask for a commission when posting jobs to non-free job search websites (plus background checks and other things we ...

C. Use a corporate recruitment tool. Haiku is almost ready for Beta. That means it's time to start thinking about professional support staff. That is a slight departure from past practices.

[haiku] DNS woes (Urias McCullough)

Haiku Mailing List - 1 hour 28 min ago
We transferred the domains from GoDaddy to Namecheap today, and while the name servers were still pointed to godaddy after the transfer, it seems godaddy purged our DNS records immediately forcing me to reconstruct it as quickly as possible. As such, there may be some hiccups as the new DNS propogates through the internets. Sorry for the irritation, if I known that would occur, I would have done things a bit differently. ...
