Hi all,

The time has come for me to part company with my current employer.

I'm looking for a job that will make use of my Linux skills and enable  
me to work towards becoming a Senior Solutions Architect.

My skills are:

    * Linux Administration Experience in the following distributions:
       * Debian (Desktop & Server)
       * Redhat (Server)
       * Gentoo (Desktop & Server)
       * Ubuntu (Desktop and Server)
       * Centos (Server)
    * Linux High Availability
    * Virtualisation using Xen
    * MySQL adminstration including Replication (master-slave and multi-master)
    * Apache Administration including mod_rewrite, mod_proxy and mod_log_sql
    * PHP programming (including maintaining sessions across cluster nodes)
    * Exim4/Postfix
    * Cyrus/Dovecot
    * OpenVPN
    * Networking
    * Nagios (2 & 3)
    * Munin
    * Systems Security

I also have a good general knowledge of the following:

    * BASH
    * Joomla/Drupal
    * Python
    * TWIKI

Previous roles have included Windows desktop support (with a small  
time spent supporting Vista), Windows server support and Lotus Notes  

Ideally, I'm looking for a role that will enable me to build on my  
web-clustering/security skills and compliment the self-funded degree  
in Computer Science that I am currently undertaking with the Open  

Although I'm currently based in Monmouth, I'm not too fussed where the  
job is as I can relocate. I just need to be a commutable distance from  
a place that my Wife wants to live!

I've got a full, clean drivers license as well.

Please send any possible leads to me off-list and I'll follow them up ASAP.

Thanks in advance,
