Sys. Admin / Tech. Support person Looking for Work
I have just completed my first year of University and am looking for work during the summer which I can hopefully continue during the next year of my degree. I am 20 years old and have been working with computers for 8 years – mainly concentrating on internet and networking, server administration, customer support and software development for internet applications.
I am primarily looking for server administration and customer support work; however I am open to offers for all sorts of work. I am available to work very flexible hours and am based in the UK (Midlands).
I have good experience administering servers and have very good communication skills, with a good phone and email manner. I am used to configuring all systems and services via editing of configuration files and so am not tied down to any one server administration software package (such as cPanel) – although using these is not a problem.
Systems with which I am very familiar:
Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows, Linux (many distributions)
DNS: Bind, TinyDNS, DNS Infastructure
Networking: Configuration and Fault-finding, DHCP
Mail: QMail, Courier IMAP, BincIMAP(/SSL), POP3 (Some use of Postfix)
Web: Apache/1.3.x, Apache/2.x, Lighttpd (with PHP FastCGI)
Database: MySQL, Oracle
Coding: (X)HTML, CSS, PHP, Perl, Java
General: Systems Administration, Technical Support, System Security
I currently administer two of my own servers for my personal needs, running between the two are the following services:
Web: Lighttpd, Lighttpd-SSL - (with PHP4 and PHP5)
DNS: TinyDNS (Primary and Secondary)
Mail: QMail, BincIMAP-SSL
I am always willing to learn new technologies and am a very fast learner. I always use my own initiative and enjoy researching new ideas and systems that I have not previously encountered.
If you would like a copy of my C.V. (Resume) then please feel free to contact me:

iceglow.net is only being used to run mail and dns services for all of my domains at the minute - the IP address that the iceglow.net domain is pointing to is experiencing on-going routing difficulties at HE that are beyond my control and all of my live sites had to be altered - its all fun . I am currently waiting on a support response from HE regarding this issue as there is nothing more that I can do to fix the problem at my end.
If you wish to see live sites that are running on my servers, try:

Yes, my time zone is GMT (BST - So +1 hour for Daylight Saving at the minute.)
I would be willing to work up to roughly 9 hours per day (give or take a couple). As I stated previously, I am also willing to carry out part time work so this is more of a maximum than a minimum value.
To give you a rough figure I would expect pay of approximately £4.50/hr (~ $8/hr), however this is completely negotiable.
