I would like to enthusiastically second Arron here, as an employer I always 
look for real concrete proof of what candidates are, uh, spieling about.

After some rather bad experiences, I do not trust resumes or even 
interviews. I want to see small projects. Being able to search some mailing 
lists and find real day-to-day comments by the individual is fantastic and 
gives me lots of confidence.

My two cents,
