    Lucky bastard whoever gets this job! Man, I wish I had those skills!

    Not looking for a lazy office pest are you?
    When that job comes up, I'm your man!!!

    Bags interstate 'paid supporter position' when it becomes available!

    when i finish my course (in several years time) i'll be your business manager :P

    I can surf the net good. Are you hiring for that?

    I run two websites that use default WordPress and ComicPress templates. Clearly I'm your man.

    If that doesn't work for you, if you guys ever need someone to write one article a week from Brisbane and are willing to pay big bucks for a guy with no experience, I'll probably be available for that :p Hell, if you pay enough to let me quit my current job, I could even write two articles a week. You can't get much better value than that.

    Stuff like this makes me jealous of techies and their job prospects in places like this and with game developers.

    Good luck to the applicants. :)

    Keeping Linux based web servers running like a well oiled machine...



    So, your ideal candidate is a magician?


        James mac if that was the correct response we would be talking about windows servers :p

    I don't have any of those skills, but I really like Kotaku.

    When do I start?
