Seeking a job
I am a high school student (will be graduating in less than a month) currently seeking a summer job in an internet hosting related field. I am currently only able to work weekends, but I will be available to work full time after the middle of June. I do not have a preference as to what I would like to do, as I have never worked in the field of hosting before. However, I do have some experience in the field that would allow me to adapt to whatever position you may feel is available, and I am willing to learn new things as I go.
I have a lot of experience using the Windows operating system. In the past, I also had a lot of experience using the Mac operating system, however I have not used it much in recent years. I have some basic knowledge of the bash shell on the Linux operating system, such as compiling and executing programs, manipulating files, and setting permissions through SSH.
I have mantained and helped maintain a few websites in the past. I have experience using Cpanel. I can install various CGI, and PHP scripts. Some of the website scripts I have installed in the past include messageboards, (WWWBoard, InvisionBoard, Ikonboard) content management systems, (PHPNuke, Mambo) counters, news scripts (Moveable Type), and a few others. I believe that it would not be very difficult for me to learn to install other scripts, or assist people in installing scripts.
I have set up, and assisted others in setting up LAN servers for games such as Counter-Strike, and BattleField1942. I have also installed AdminMod on a Counter-Strike server in the past, and believe I would be able to do others easily by following instructions.
I hope I didn't miss any important details that someone might need to consider this post. If anyone has a position available that they believe I would be able to fill, please contact me with details. I'm open to anything that sounds fair. I can be contacted by ICQ, MSN, or AIM, but please contact me by e-mail first if you wish to do that. I can be contacted by e-mail at the following address:

I will also be checking this thread, just in case. Thanks.
