Chugalug Digest, Vol 31, Issue 81

From: "Kite, Mike" 
------------------------------------------------------
Thanks Lynn and Meuon.

Putting a pipe between domain and user bears the same bitter fruit :(

It's an OEL6 server, which I think, is pretty close, in this case, to RHEL6.

It does indeed have the return code -6 in /var/log/messages when trying to CIFS mount it.
And I may as well just keep trying smbmount rather than smbget, simply because I'll need to put files there as well as get them.

I'm trying to find the Red Hat article you mention, though this machine does not have a  /etc/request-key.d/ folder.  I do have a Red Hat portal account, I'm trying to recover my pwd to that now.

Thanks

Small job

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I'd like to consider hiring someone to help me write a program that will be
used on my mail server. I may decide to write the whole thing myself in
PHP, but this isn't the type of work I do best.

I have a MySQL database, mail, with 3 tables: 1 for virtual users, 1 for
virtual aliases (forwards), and 1 for virtual users (actual users on the
system that receive email).

Each table has a primary key value of the domain ID, and the aliases &
users table also have individual primary key IDs.

I need a little web GUI that will allow a user to login to add, delete or
modify existing email addresses (change password).

Currently, all passwords (in virtual

OT: Job Opportunity: American Poolplayers Association

From: Lisa Ridley 
------------------------------------------------------
I know this is a LUG list, but I also know there are a couple of people =
actively job hunting so I thought I would pass this along =97 I saw it =
this morning when got online to check if our pool team stats were posted =
yet this week:

The American Poolplayers Association is looking for a Sr Software =
Engineer to act as a Development Team Leader in their Lake St. Louis =
office.  If you have experience with MSSQL Server and ASP.NET, and are =
willing to relocate, check this out:

http://www.poolplayers.com/jobs/software-engineer/

Here=92s what I know about their system that=92s not in this job =
description:

1.  They have a public facing site that has advertising and educational =
materials on it.
2.  They have a member portal where individual members can log in and =
see their team stats & personal stats =97 current and historical , renew =
memberships, and get an electronic copy of their APA membership card, =
which has to be presented along with a picture ID as proof of identity =
if you are playing in an APA sanctioned tournament anywhere in the US, =
including the national tournament in Las Vegas, get an electronic copy =
of the scoresheet for upcoming local league matches, etc.
3.  They have a franchise owner portal where the franchise operators for =
the different local leagues (ours here covers Hamilton, Bradley, Marion =
and Rhea counties in TN) log in every week and, among other things, =
enter the individual match sheets for every match played that week in =
their franchise territory (which the National APA uses for a variety of =
things, including handicap assessment of individuals for tournament =
play), team fees and other things that franchise operators must do to =
run their franchise.  There is also a section where local league =
operators can set up a league website for their area, that is currently =
not used =97 much of the functionality in that section is broken.
4.  The entire website is dated (no responsiveness, no mobile =
capabilities, etc), and needs some serious help.  I emailed them about 4 =
months ago as a member inquiring if there was someone I could talk to =
about helping them fix some of their website issues, but never got to =
the right person and didn=92t continue to pursue it.

I detest ASP.net and MSSQL, and have little experience in that realm =
(plus don=92t want to move to Lake St. Louis) or I would pursue it =
myself.  You probably get 3 or 4 free trips to Vegas to National =
Tournaments every year as part of the job =97 nice perk.

If you are a Microsoft Techie and are open to working in Lake St. Louis, =
could be a cool opportunity.  If you can convince them to abandon =
Microsoft and ASP.net and move to open source, even better.  If you =
pursue the job and get it, let me know please.=

Anyone hiring?

From: David Rucker 
------------------------------------------------------
Hello,

Most of you may not know me but I follow the list a lot and reply very
rarely. I currently work for RadioShack as one of their Expert Repair
Technicians doing cell phone and tablet repairs. I am one of the few of
their techs that can do advanced soldering. I also owned and operated a
computer service shop for several years as well. I am current going to
school at Volkswagen in their automation mechatronics program. RadioShack
is on their last leg and is now circling the drain, so to speak. Pending
being purchased by Amazon or sprint. Most job listings in the tech field
are morning afternoon shifts. I need something from 4 pm to 9 pm during the
week and flexible on weekends. I can provide a full resume, just wanting to
see if anyone knew of anything or had anything available themselves.

Thank you in advance!
David R. Rucker

Published resume and materials on GitHub

From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" 
------------------------------------------------------
I've been a member of GitHub for a while, but now I'm finally putting it to
use.

It might not be much, but I'm posting my resume (scrubbed), PDF of my
LinkedIn profile, and applicable certificates to GitHub in my first
repository.

I am in the job market, and still looking for system administrator or
system engineer opportunities. I'm also interested in breaking into DevOps
and SysOps positions, although I don't consider myself a developer.

If you have any job leads, please contact me. I am still looking, and
willing to relocate.

Thanks in advance!

Tech Recruiters

From: DaWorm 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone on the list have any recommendations on good tech recruiters,
especially for more engineering oriented positions, as opposed to IT
positions?

I'm looking to hire someone similar to myself, who can do both hardware
design as well as embedded software design, and most of the recruiting
services I've used so far are either oriented to much higher end people
than I'm looking for, or are contract only recruiters, where I'm looking a
hiring someone full time.

Any recommendations appreciated.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in this type of position, or knows someone
who is, let me know and I'll pass along the job description.

Thanks,
  Jeff.

New Bipartisan H1B bill could kill American Tech Jobs!

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
New legislation being pushed by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to hike the H-1B visa cap is drawing criticism and warnings that it will lead to an increase in offshoring of tech jobs.

IEEE-USA said the legislation, introduced by a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Tuesday, will "help destroy" the U.S. tech workforce with guest workers.

Other critics, including Ron Hira, a professor of public policy at Howard University and a leading researcher on the issue, said the bill gives the tech industry "a huge increase in the supply of lower-cost foreign guest workers so they can undercut and replace American workers."

Hira said this bill "will result in an exponential rise of American jobs being shipped overseas."

Astec Industries, the company I work for, is searching for candidates for

Nonprofit needs a desktop

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm not going to be at the swap meet on Sunday, but if anyone wants the old
32-bit half-rack rackable system I bought off Aaron a few years ago (comes
with 2 drives), then hit me up. I'd take some dumb switches and/or 1-2
older managed switches for it....

I have a client that needs a PC for light-weight use (email, building a
resume, and searching for jobs).

The plan is to put Ubuntu on it. It'll be at a shelter for the residents to
use, and we'll even be configuring it so they can't go to any social media
websites, etc...

The old PC is running XP, is laden with viruses, and has 512mb of RAM. I
told the client it wasn't even worth me fixing that one, and that I'd see
what I could do about finding them a replacement machine.

Anyone willing to donate anything?

- David

Ubiquity EdgeMax (ASG)

From: Mark Quering 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey all


I recently sold one of these units to a customer basically to give it a
try. Needless to say at the $100 price point I was pretty happy with the
device.

The unit has a pretty solid build quality. The web management interface is
a little rough out of the box. A firmware update helped quite a bit. I
haven't played in the CLI yet but I hear that EdgeOS is a fork of Vayatta.

The web interface worked well for a basic SOHO NAT setup with a few inbound
firewall rules. Been very stable for the two months it's been in a
production environment. I also did not get to fully test LAN to WAN
throughput of their network processor due to time constraints.

The only odd thing I noticed with the unit I deployed was that it generated
a fair bit of heat. More than I would expect. I also did not need to
contact support so I cannot speak to that aspect of the product. I would
say for the price it's definitely worth purchasing to play with.

Due to my experience with this product and good things I've heard here and
on other forums, I am seriously considering also offering their managed PoE
switches and AP's to my SMB offerings.

IT folks at Coyoto laid off

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I've heard through the grape vine that a number of folks working in IT for
Coyote Logistics (who were originally working for / with Access America
Transport and were caught up in the merger) have been fired.

Not only were they all originally promised "their jobs stay here" in
Chattanooga and that they wouldn't be fired after the merger, but
apparently at least 1 of them is expecting a new kid next month.

I know of at least 1 person who is on Chugalug - I don't think anyone else
is.

That said, I'm emailing to see if you guys know of anyone hiring.

There's some folks with engineering / infrastructure backgrounds as well as
folks with Customer Service / Tier 1 tech support backgrounds that are
needing a job right about now.

ArchLinux vs Ubuntu

From: Dan Lyke 
------------------------------------------------------
I have an old netbook with a new SSD. Yesterday I put Xubuntu on it,
but I'm wondering about things that do a better job of keeping Gnome
off my system, or otherwise being lighter weight than Xubuntu.

My one requirement is that I'd like to run Mixxx (which Arch supports)
or something similar (ie: music playing with easy tempo shifting,
queuing, and a few set points) on this machine. I'm noticing that a
couple of the cool kids these days are running ArchLinux, mostly on
semi-embedded systems.

Anyone got thoughts on this matter?

Dan
