Don't call me, I'll call you. No, seriously, I'll call you. Don't call me.

I'm currently out of work and looking for a new job. I share a cell plan with my family, but thanks to the combination of my having little money coming in and my sister & her boyfriend deciding that text messages are super fun, my phone's been cut off. So now I have dozens of resumes floating around with a bad phone number! How do I let prospective employers know my new number? [more inside]

Where are the entry level developer jobs?

Computer Jobs filter: My friend recently graduated with a BS in Information Systems (after a long hiatus away from school). He has pre-college experience in database architecture using MS Access, but his other skills (MySQL, pHp) are learned on his own. He wants to find a job as a DBA or a web developer, but doesn't have the 3+ years of professional experience everyone wants. Even if he's able to learn Oracle, Python, Ruby, etc. on his own, how can he prove he knows them without resume experience to back him up? [more inside]

Producing DVDs in New York

I'm in Brazil and I need produce 3,000 copies of a educational DVD to be distributed/sold at an exhibition in New York. We would provide the master DVD and cover art and we need the 3,000 copies burned, packaged and delivered to a New York address by the beginning of April 2008. My guess is that it would be cheaper to have it done locally (in or near New York) but at this moment it is only a guess. Which companies would you recommend for this sort of job and what kind of prices and deadlines I should expect?
