The first sentence:
    ≥ I am a contract web programmer and have done work for many web
        design companies and ad agencies≤

...should be translated to:

     ≥ I am an agent for an off-shore sweatshop of underpaid and impover-
        ished webmonkeys who do work for fly-by-nite straight-to-OTCBB
        e-commerce ventures.≤
