I have gotten some client-contacts in Strasbourg, but the 
have found my E-Mail/Address via an other Debian-List...

They told me, this list (debian-consultants) is death !

Right, and because there are some people (including me) 
regulary subscribed to this list, the question is WHY ? 

Maybe, some of the subscribers of this list post a schort 
description of themself and about what they can support or
which services they are offering...

So if there is some one which is looking for a consoultant. 
maybe the posted messages can be found via mailarchives and 
our allknown Goole-God...

I like to post in german (native), english and french.

I get between 2000 and 8000 SPAMS a day and 90% comes directly 
to <linux4michelle@freenet.de> 

Many thanks to the developers of spamassassin.
