Yep, I'm available during the day, and evenings. Though I do have some other
committments - but these periods are known and can be worked around. (I'm
teaching some continuing ed courses at UofC). I've always assumed timing to
be a juggling act, with a need to prioritize issues (i.e. server down issues
get handled before a workstation config issue).
With regards to billing, I'm flexible, but generally charge in the neighborhod
of $60/hour. I also believe in fair billing - I don't usually bill for the
"chat" time that happens occasionally (i.e. If I'm on site for 2 hours, but
we spend 30 minutes talking about vacation plans, then I would only bill for
1.5 hours... though this is not written in stone...)
With regards to skills, I know Linux well enough to know where to get the info
I need to solve an issue. Most of the usual type issues I'd be able to
handle right away. I've been out of the Windows Networking world for a
while, but haven't seen any great changes there (still manage a couple Win2K
servers). I'm experienced with Samba, PostgreSQL, Apache, MSSQL, IIS, Cold
Fusion, Exchange, etc...
