|Highlights:||I've installed all of the popular Linux distro's. Redhat Enterprise, CentOS, Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu. I currently manage some of these same servers as well. Anything from networking, web servers, e-mail servers, DNS, load balancing and firewalls. If it runs on Linux, I've probably worked it at least once, or I can figure it out very quickly.
Also, I've installed a number of Asterisk VoIP solutions. These have been on CentOS running Asterisk and FreePBX. Some are pure VoIP solutions and some have used the Digium interface cards for analog lines. I've done small offices ranging from 2-25 people. As well as all of the usual asterisk features such as voicemails forwarded to e-mail, incoming fax recognition, call groups, intelligent call forwarding, voice prompts, etc.
I've also done some one off projects such as real time camera streaming for a surfing web site, and some other various projects.
Most valued among my skill set though is the fact that I'm highly available and very competent as you'll see from my reviews.
|Work terms:||I prefer to work via e-mail and instant messenger. How-ever my most valuable attribute is being consistently available. I always carry a smart phone with me and usually a netbook as well so I can deal with any issues that might come up if I'm not in front of my work computer.
Also, I prefer long term projects (2 months to a year) as opposed to short job. This way a understanding and trust can be built, which in my experience makes for a better working relationship.
If the project needs onsite work, and the budget includes travel costs I'm almost always available for short term trips.
