[SATLUG] Linux Support Needed in Bandera

I've been reading this list for over a year, but have never posted.  I 
work for a small company up in Bandera and am the resident geek, so some 
of my duties include troubleshooting hardware problems and maintaining 
the network.  Right now we have two windows desktops, two Linux 
desktops, a headless Linux machine used for backups and serving scanning 
and printing to the large Xerox.  There are a few printers attached to 
some machines on the wired network.  The Linux machines are all running 

Anyway, I'm moving to Houston and I don't know of anybody up here with 
Linux skills that can handle basic IT maintenance duties.  The company 
doesn't need a whole lot of help, but the people in the office aren't 
very tech-savvy, so what seem like simple problems to us can ruin their day.

They can pay between $25 and $50 an hour depending on the person's 
experience.  If you're just a regular Linux user and you can also 
support the Windows machines and network, you are plenty qualified.  If 
you're a pro, you can request something closer to the $50/hour.  I'd 
imagine they might need a few hours of work per month.

It's a very laid-back atmosphere and the people are great.  If anyone is 
interested, or knows someone who might be, please let me know.  I'm just 
worried because I finally got them to embrace Linux, Firefox, 
Thunderbird, OpenOffice, etc. and I don't want to leave them unsupported 
regretting their decision.
