Sys admin job up on their web site in Silicon Valley for 3+
months?  Either it's not a real job or something's wrong.
In discussions through my friend, I found out that employees
referring resumes to the recruiters were basically ignored
or worse, given crap about it.  Other little details came
out that just gave me the impression that it was not a place
I'd want to work.

I suppose I *would* work there if I was offered a job at this
point, but if they are not looking at resumes referred by
engineers in-house, what's the point of trying to apply from

Just seemed jinky and since at the time I was in interviews
with two other companies I didn't bother.
