Little Contract - Installing a Port! :D

Hello,

I've been fighting for 2 weeks with the installation of a port.  I require someone with expert knowledge of
installation of programs on FreeBSD who also knows how to compile from source.  Please note the issue does
not necessarily need to be "fixed" but I definitely require proof of where the problem lies:

- port?
- source?
- FreeBSD 10.1?

The port in question is Postgis 21 or from source:  2.1.4.  Of course, I'd rather the installation be from
port.  Please quote your rate - I'll give you root access.  Or, if you have me fix the problem without having to
log in, even better.

Wifi job

 Hello,

I am looking for developer(s) to assist with two separate capabilities as contributions back to the community.

1)  The ability to send management frames in wifi monitor mode with the run0 driver using the Ralink RT6390. 

2) I would also like to get HostAP working with the same Ralink RT6390 radio. WEP, WPA and WPA2 support are
required for wifi Access Point mode.

Please feel free to treat these as two separate jobs.
Please send me any questions and/or quotes. 

Kind regards,

Position wanted: DevOps/testing/developer support/software toolsmith

I'm in the SF Peninsula/Silicon Valley area, and am looking for a
new position; I prefer to work with and support FreeBSD.  I am
available as of Friday, 17 October, 2014.

Prior to my current position, I spent about 3 decades in (mostly)
sysadmin roles; more recently, I have been doing measurement of systems
under load and analyzing the results of those measurements in support of
software developers.  Some samples may be seen at
<http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/FreeBSD/bmake/>.

I am probably more familiar with FreeBSD source-based updates than a
person ought to be. :-}  (Hint: I keep a private mirror of the FreeBSD
SVN repositories on my laptop; it's updated daily.  [Yes, I realize that
the preceding sentence is ambiguous.  Both the repository and the laptop
are updated daily.])

My ideal position would be in support of developers, at least some of
whom were contributing back to the FreeBSD project.

I have a current US passport, and am willing to travel; I prefer to
continue to reside in the SF Peninsula.

My resume is available in several formats:

* PostScript:  <http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/resume.ps>
* PDF:         <http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/resume.pdf>
* HTML:        <http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/resume.html>
* ASCII text:  <http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/resume.txt>

Email is generally the best way to reach me, though I have my MTA

Dear all,

I'm looking for two to three new contracts concerning short-term projects
and/or retainer-based recurring sysadmin/maintenance work.

I'm member of the FreeBSD Ports team, made its Linux emulation layer use CentOS
6.5 instead of Fedora 10, am in the progress of porting GitLab and will do more
ports i'm interested in when time allows (I have a list... it's long).

I've worked with FreeBSD mostly in web server environments, setting up
jails to handle NGINX to serve static content, php-fpm to run wordpress, uwsgi
for Django, along with MySQL and postgresql for their respective backends.

Fun things included migrating a client off apache towards NGINX, thereby
doubling page load speed and tripling concurrent requests.

On top of that I've managed FreeNAS boxes running off enterprise hardware
(taken over and kept alive zpools with 20 Seagate SAS drives, set up and
maintained 48TB zpools for another client) as well maintained the backup
scripts. 

Smaller things included setting up OpenVPN servers and tunnels, tending to 
OpenLDAP/Kerberos installations, creating Salt config files for a large system
of (CentOS) containers with various software pieces inside, and continous
integration using Jenkins.

Looking for a contractor for a small FreeBSD-related job.

Rather than doing it myself, I'm looking for someone who is willing and
able to be paid to set up DNSSEC for my exit.com domain.  The server is
FreeBSD-based; you'll have access to it long enough to test it and make
sure it works as advertised.  I'll also need detailed maintenance
instructions and a set of automated scripts to do things like generate
keys and regen config files.  If you already have the expertise it
shouldn't take long and I really need it done.  I'm willing to negotiate
rates.  If you're interested, contact me at frank <at> exit.com or
fmayhar <at> gmail.com.

Thanks!
