Hello Sun experts,

I work for and one of our teams here is looking for serious
garbage collection expertise.

In a "past life" I worked at Sun for 5+ years and one of my former
co-workers (Randy Crihfield who's now in the JVM group) suggested I
might try hitting up this alias for some help.

In a nutshell:

* the fantasy games group here at has some pretty serious
issues with memory consumption and (specifically) garbage collection.

* They are looking for someone intimately familiar with the ins and o=
of the Java 1.5 / 1.6 garbage collector... a certified GC bad-a** :)

* They are more than willing to PAY for this expertise since it's alm=
certainly not something that can be solved in simple back & forth ema=
thread or 30 minute phone call - except for the Sun JDK, all of our
stuff is home grown Java code.

* They are somewhat leary of who might show up if they were to just g=
to professional services :)

So I thought I might see if your team can or knows of someone who can
provide assistance. Please let me know if this is something any of yo=
might be of assistance with.

Thanks for your time and feel free to call me at the work # below if
that works better for you.
