To this extent, a lot of our work is done through search rather than advertising, and I hoped we might be able to build a working relationship.

Isn't Mark Thatcher the son of Margaret Thatcher?  I wonder what kind of 
  a UNIX engineer a Hedge Fund would require?  This sounds like some of 
the scams I have received with some of the wording changed to fit the

further.  If they want money from you, tell them to piss up a rope. 
Peace, Dennis
