XDA Job Board Closing its Doors Tonight

Despite rumors that resistance is futile, we on the XDA administration team have deemed it necessary to shut the forum down in order to protect against the enemies of the Federation.
OK, OK. April Fools! We’re not actually closing down the XDA Job Board. We’re also not helping you stalk those poor lost souls running inferior OSes, and Jordan’s not leaving us. *PHEW* However, we would like to see more use come of the XDA Job Board.
