Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $44

I solve your problems with UNIX systems (Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, BSD), or I don't get paid.

Working on UNIX systems since 1998. Every one of my "real life" jobs so far has been UNIX-related.

Performance monitoring, optimization, security, automation, backups and disaster recovery, load balancing... you name it.
