Part time sysadmin work

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I occasionally post here looking for people willing to work, on an
as-needed basis, doing remote sysadmin work for me (mostly in the form of
monitoring infrastructure and jumping in if something goes down in an "on
call" scenario if I am traveling or otherwise unavailable).

Probably only a few weeks/weekends a year, very flexible, you have the
power to say "no"...

This would be Linux severs only.

I don't have it posted on https://developcents.com/jobs/ but feel free to
look at that for more about us.

Please contact me if interested.

Thanks,
David

tunnelblick OpenVPN client for OS X

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Do any of you guys who use Mac have experience with tunnelblick? I'm
wondering what your experience has been, if you trust it, and if it does
the job.

I don't use a Mac, but will test the software shortly (early next week) on
my wife's Mac laptop.

I have a client who needs an OpenVPN client  - most of their hardware is
Windows based, but 1 laptop is a Mac...

Job opportunity in NYC

From: Nate Hill 
------------------------------------------------------
I miss you, Chattanooga!

I know I'm opening myself up to ridicule by posting a job in NYC on
Chugalug, but hey I can live with that.

I'm up here in NY running the Metropolitan New York Library Council now,
and I'm hiring a Digital Services Coordinator.  This is a *really cool*
opportunity.  I'm looking for a developer with some chops, but also someone
who can organize folks and help create collaborations, collisions, and
opportunities between digital library projects and the rest of the civic
activist / arts / creative technology communities.  Info below.

#############

http://metro.org/jobs/digital-services-coordinator-metro/

The Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is seeking qualified
applicants for the position of Digital Services Coordinator.

The Digital Services Coordinator will support Digital Culture of
Metropolitan New York (DCMNY), an online collection hosting service for
members of the Metropolitan New York Library Council. DCMNY is currently
powered by Islandora; the Digital Services Coordinator will need to be
comfortable with Linux, Fedora Commons, Drupal, and custom PHP
modifications. The ideal candidate will be confident with this technology
stack and is up to date on other frameworks and repository solutions (e.g.
Apache SOLR, Ruby/Rails, Blacklight, Hydra). She or he will make
recommendations and lead a migration to a different platform should this be
advantageous.

METRO=E2=80=99s staff of 15+ people hosts classes and events for our member=
ship.
The Digital Services Coordinator will also collaborate with the METRO staff
to maintain the technical infrastructure for the office and community
space. This support includes but is not limited to: wireless network, VOIP
network, hardware/software support, technology purchasing, and Google apps.

Finally, the Digital Services Coordinator will have an outward-facing role
at METRO; she or he will engage with the New York/Westchester technology
community beyond the library world. Civic hacking, big data, data literacy,
physical computing, the IoT, and gigabit fiber networks are topics that
should get you excited and light you up with new ideas. This outward-facing
role will lead to new initiatives, new opportunities, and new perspectives
at METRO. The Digital Services Coordinator will be central to their design
and implementation.

The ideal candidate is a curious, creative, and communicative technologist
who will be responsible for supporting and developing a wide variety of
services at METRO. Vision and leadership come from all levels of this lean
organization, so the ideal Digital Services Coordinator will combine
humility and grace with expertise and authority. She or he identifies as a
capable programmer and believes in beautiful, concise, and well-commented
code.

The Digital Services Coordinator will have some opportunity to work
remotely, but will need to be on site regularly in our space on 11th street
in Manhattan as well. METRO is a fun and collaborative workplace full of
energy and enthusiasm.

METRO offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits. Salary is
commensurate with experience.

METRO is an equal opportunity employer. To apply, please send a .pdf copy
of your resume and cover letter along with any other material you would
like considered part of your application to info@metro.org

About METRO

METRO is the largest of nine library councils in the state of New York,
with METRO serving all of New York City and Westchester County. These
councils were founded in the 1960s to facilitate the sharing of resources
between different types of libraries and archives: academic, public, art,
museum, corporate, and more. In the past, programmatic efforts have been
primarily focused on the discovery and delivery of physical materials.
Today, METRO is increasingly oriented toward the digital, in work ranging
from collaborative digitization projects that engage our diverse membership
to the administration of the Empire State Digital Network, a service hub of
the Digital Public Library of America. In addition, METRO offers a wide
variety of classes, lectures, events, and other professional development
activities.

METRO aims to serve as a laboratory and experimental space for our growing
membership, combining new developments in librarianship with emerging
technologies drawn from parallel fields. The Digital Services Coordinator
will help drive this innovation.

About to graduate

From: Jared Hamilton 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey Chugalug, I'm anticipating graduation this August and I'm beginning to 
apply for jobs. Anyone have any leads as far as good companies I can look at or 
job openings in the Chattanooga area? 

Other than my degree from Lee (Information Systems B.S.), my experience is 
mainly  an internship at Life Care here in Cleveland and tinkering at home with

Internship/Job

From: Tyler Mittan 
------------------------------------------------------
Hi fellow Chugs (not sure about that nickname),

I just got done at Cleveland State Community College and will be attending
either the University of Rochester or Case Western Reserve University
(haven't decided yet) majoring in Comp Sci.. I need a summer job to save up
for the move, but would prefer that it be in a closer related field to my
major than say, retail or food service. I am very comfortable with HTML,
CSS, and for the most part, jQuery. I understand, but haven't written
anything yet in PHP. Along with that, I had a class in C++, but haven't
really been able to implement anything like that in web design, but it does
help me understand things like arrays, loops, if/else statements, etc. I am
willing to work on a "contractual" basis, meaning I realize that my limited
experience in a very competitive market and am therefore I am willing to
work for below the minimum wage (hence why we'd need to make it to where I
am a "contractor"). Honestly, I really *want* the experience and *NEED*
money for the move up there. Please let me know if you know of anything
available or are willing to take a chance on me. Thanks!

Disney Making Laid-Off US Tech Workers Train Foreign H1-B Replacements

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
The NY Times brings us a story on the Disney Corporation laying off U.S. tech workers and replacing them with immigrants visiting the country under H1-B visas. The twist is that the immigrant workers are not your nice local visiting foreign guy from the university who wants to stick around 'cause he likes the people here... they are employees of foreign-based consulting companies in the business of collecting H1-B visas and "import[ing] workers for large contracts to take over entire in-house technology units." The other twist? The U.S. tech workers are required to train their replacements before vacating their jobs, or risk losing severance benefits (excerpts of the Disney's layoff notice are included in the article).

Normally I use my laptop as a workstation, with wired Internet and a 1 T
extra disk in the cd-tray.

Today I tried to boot it in a cafe, off-line and without the extra disk.
It was not possible. Systemd would just wait indefinitely for some
start-up jobs (it was waiting for the missing disk to come on-line among
some other things). Fortunately, I had the extra disk with me, so I
attached it and tried again. Still for no use. Systemd now waited for
the network interfaces. So I had to actually connect an ethernet cable
to a router just to get the crap to boot, and then unplug it and walk
back to my table.

How did this happen? How come Debian is now  /more/ useless than
Windows? It can't even boot if the hardware configuration is not exactly
the way it assumes. WTF!

Greetings!

As some of you know, I have been working a third shift operations type job now for a year.  This means that I have not been able to attend any Chugalunches or other CHUGALUG events.  

However, this week (4/20-4/24) I will be doing some training in the day time.  I would like to call a "Chuga-get-together" for one evening this week.

Now, I know what the rules are. . . you call the event, you pick the time and place.  However, as chairman of this event, I would like to open this to the floor for suggestions, so that everyone has the opportunity to chime in on time preferences and places (Besides, you guys always come up with interesting places I haven't heard of before).

My only requirements are that it has to be in the evening (after 5PM) and it has to be at a place where adult beverages can be consumed.  

I'm looking forward to seeing you all again!

OT - Job - Burying outdoor cable run

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I have a client that wants to have a (new) cable run between two different
buildings.

The buildings are a little more than 100 yards from each other, and even
though I've explained that the maximum length that CAT6a is rated for is
328 feet, the client wants to take the risk and run a cable.

I thought about doing fiber, but that would add quite a bit of expense to
the project.

If you or your company does this type of work, I'd like to talk to you
about contracting out this job.

Thanks,
David

Linux has spoiled me

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------
Just ranting while watching things download and install on an MS-Server:

I’m building a testbed for some future Linux integration with Microsoft Biztalk, an “enterprise service bus / message queue” on a VM. I’m a few days of playing around, on my 4th install (I’ve made some stupid mistakes and had to start over) and learned a lot. 

Mostly what I’ve learned from the Linux and Mac worlds is: I’m spoiled. 

Linux servers, until you get into really weird stuff, just seem to be couple of yum installs or apt-get’s away from having just about anything you would normally want, up and running. On the weirder stuff, you might have to add a few things from the standard apt/yum/etc repo’s and then either use a private repo or compile something from scratch. Compiling being a rarer option than it used to be, but is still a good option for special cases. 

I’m pretty crusty on MS-Stuff, so I’ve had to learn a lot that I have intentionally forgotten. But what really surprises me is how different the processes are for installing various Microsoft products. Although the “Server Manager” has a decent start with “Add roles and features” it’s a subset of things, and I think it is missing some common essentials. For other things I’ve had to download installers and run them, use “CAB’s” and “Box’s”.. the weirdest one was install a 32 bit version of Excel, on a 64 bit Server OS because “BAM” requires it and won’t work on 32 bit.. I’ve lost track of the reboots, extra installations... uninstalls (SQL Server Express is installed with Visual Studio, but must be removed so you can install SQL Server).. Obscure menu tree hunting to find an option to turn on or off…  I’ve even found and been following several different official how-to’s that do not agree. But it works. Or at least seems to be. I have yet to use it for anything. It’s obvious that Microsoft has groups that don’t “come together” on how to install software, deal with requirements. Microsoft seems to be missing a company/product line wide package manager, and that seems to be a very antiquated thought process. and some things seem to be only available in 32 bit.. like the BI Tools for Visual Studio. Come on Microsoft, why would things you would run on a nice 64 bit server, requiring 32 bit packages for support? 


That a worldwide collective of a wide range of Linux programmer and sysadmins do such a great job of repositories and installations from them, makes me realize how spoiled I have become, and how thankful I am for everyone’s efforts. 




MS-Biztalk Wizard (that is Linux Friendly) needed

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------
I’m trying to help a foreign company with an integration project. Many of their systems are Linux/AIX/Sun/*nix, and some are not. 
Their goal is to use Microsoft Biztalk as an Enterprise Service Bus / Message Queueing interface point for multiple systems. Some of which understand CSV via file imports, some via XML via file imports, some via XML and REST and/or SOAP. They will need to do some data transformations: CSV in, XML out, etc.. 

What they need is an experienced mercenary MS-Biztalk expert that can help them, on site, do integration and train a talented motivated utility employee in care, feeding and minor tweaks. 
You would have to spend some time in the pleasant resort destination country. Probably several weeks over a handful of trips.  It might be possible to take a spouse (you would pay their airfare, some expenses) and they would enjoy the location. 

Specifically looking for the kind of person that can do actual configs, tuning and data transformational code while on site in their test/dev sandbox and possibly help move it to the production systems. As I understand it, the best way to do that with Biztalk is via Visual Studio and specific Biztalk tools. Not my worlds.  

Language: English, Pay and Travel: Corporate expert rates and expenses. 

Caveat: I may be one of the Linux geeks you’d be interfacing with and I’m in charge of the overall project. That can be very good, or bad. :)

Apply by contacting me directly first. I’ll reply with more formal information. Trying to do this via informal networking channels before hitting the recruiters and job boards. 

—Mike--
