Computer specialist for hire

I have written patches for various open source projects ranging from openvz kernel to the jemalloc memory allocator. I know Linux, freebsd, windows. I know how to program in C, Ruby and also various other domain specific languages such as haml, sql, etc. I’ve built 4 socket servers w/ 32gb of ram and many many desktop systems. Drop me a pm if any of this interests you my rates are more reasonable than local companies and I guarantee my work.
