You will be so clever that you affect the world sequence of events when you blink. You will be able to spot problems in servers by smelling the air, and you communicate with them like you and the server are one organism.
Your wife wants to leave you because you have copies of "Server Weekly" dotted around and once caught you late at night in a room alone with a Packard Bell and two glasses of wine.
You and servers are like man and machine, you marvel at your own brilliance and others want to be you. Your charges are not based upon a premise of " I know something you don't so pay me bitch " but... look I love what I do, pay me fair and I will earn long term love from you and your business colleagues.
Problem 1 -
I have a server company that are so rude and arrogant it is unforgivable. I want to move, because they have a habit or tick reaction each time I email or ask them a question which is " You don't have a service level agreement, do you want one "
I say no thanks £11,600 investment in your hard ware means you do not keep saying that like a demented dribbling lunatic.
Anyway this, and their arrogant £8 per hour sales team boys tend to have an air of " I own the company " and "if you haven't got £4,000,000 and your not Barclays you are a small minnow in my vast world of importance"
I have 7 very small sites and I would like to move them on to a VPS.. your job will include.
1/ Skype typing chat to find out which server is best.
2/ Overlooking which server is best to move to.
3/ Physical moving all my sites, Apache, MySql, and so on seamlessly
4/ You will have an idea on how to indemnify me form your mistakes or your leaving me in a worse state than I am now
Feel free to PM me or ideally post your questions here.
Here is my server spec now... I am told by my coders I do not need this much spec for my sites.
I will gather the site sizes for you and post them here if needed.
