And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it look like some of the responses look as if they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post.

I think that what you posted made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am
not saying your information isn't solid., but suppose you added a title that grabbed a person's attention?
I mean "Job Vacancy @ IRRI" is kinda boring. You could glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write news headlines to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've written.
Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
