ISP / Telco Support & Setup Representative

Small facilities based telecommunications & Internet service provider based in downtown Toronto is seeking a young, energetic person to work in our support & setup department.

This applicant must be technically savvy, mechanically minded and have a good understanding of Internet technologies, protocols & architectures. All of our back-end systems are of one unix flavour or another, so this person must be comfortable in a shell / terminal environment. Starting Salary of $34K,, make an offer :), with good review, raise in 6 months.
Lemme know if you want this or know someone who might be a fit (mcbloomatdatabloom.com).

Toronto Girl Geek Dinner
Hey Toronto!

I'm going to be missing it, but the next Toronto Geek Girl Dinner is next week, and as I missed the first one I figured there might be some people here who have yet to hear about it.

It's a great networking event for women who work in different parts of IT and other geeky fields (last month there were designers, programmers, a few tech CEO's...). The food at Hot House is pretty good too and there's a decent vegetarian selection.





It's $22, with some free tickets available for students. Guys are welcome if a girl geek friend brings them - out of 40 or so attendees last time there were 3 or 4. If your first thought is "OH! I like those odds", please don't be that guy, kthx :)

freelance webserver consultants (m$/linux/freebsd)

I've had a few customers ask for consultants I would recommend to be on call or retainer to do simple systems stuff like setup mailing lists, configure apache and manage dns. It would probably not be a huge involvement at first and would be mostly remote work, possibly involving late night reboots in the event of an emergency.

If you folks know anyone who is looking for such work, please have them send an email to mike@databloom.com with a subject of ljpostedjob.

Looking for a job ?
We are hiring an additional support person to the existing three person team.

Pay is directly related to experience, and we are willing to train someone green and promote them within.

You'd be talking on the phone quite a bit, working for people who have done your job before themselves, resolving issues with pop and imap email customers, checking link on ports on cisco switches, editing dns zones and setting up new customers.

It can get busy, but the management is sane, its a no bullshit atmosphere and you'd have to put up with me.

If you are interested, forward your resume to my lj email address mcbloom@livejournaldotcom and I'll drop you into the pit with the other poor souls.

Looking for New admin person.
My work is looking to replace an office administration position, its a 9-5, five days a week thing, its sometimes a bit quiet, but gets busy on the first of the month. Its a great environment to work in, lots of natural light, high ceilings and sane expecations from down to earth owners.

Skills are your standard office, word excel, good at multitasking and a good sense of humor.

Send me an email to mcbloom@livejournal.com if you would like to know where to apply.

LinuxWorld & NetworkWorld Volunteer Opportunity
LinuxWorld and NetworkWorld Canada is seeking student volunteers (Business or IT-inclined) to assist with the upcoming Conference & Expo at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, April 24 - 26, 2006. Volunteers will be able to attend the conference sessions of their choice in return for their time (conference admission rates run between $925 - $1125).

Sponsors include IBM, Novell, Samsung, and HP; this is a great networking opportunity as attendance is almost entirely professional and about 50% senior strata. Students are generally NOT allowed to attend, so the executive-to-student ratio is quite advantageous.

To view conference speakers and session abstracts, or to get more info, please visit www.lwnwexpo.plumcom.ca.

If you're interested, download the application form here: www.lwnwexpo.plumcom.ca/pdfs/voluntapp.pdf

Completed application forms should be faxed to 905-886-9579.

Questions? Email desiree@plumcom.ca.

Deadline for application submission: April 1, 2006

What is Masked DNS?
I've found an interesting DNS-server in the web. Has anyone tried it already? What's your impression?

Asp Hosting
I'm very interested in finding someone to farm out all Active server pages and cold fusion hosting to.
We haven't run a production windows hosting environment in two years, and I'm quite pleased to keep it that way.

Anyone doing this kind of work in the City right now ? What are you rates like ?

I thought this community might be a nice rally point for local folk looking for work, looking to find someone to help out and generally, just a good bitch fest.

Look forward to seeing your stories and meeting you.
