From: Dee Holtsclaw ------------------------------------------------------ Besides the job posting, the SSEOMS group at Bloomberg is also looking for a couple of contractors beginning in January. They generally work through a couple of staffing agencies here and rates run between $650 to $720 per day depending on your skillz. If anyone is interested I'll be happy to dig up the contact information for you. When I went through this, the agency wanted me to do some "homework" prepping for the interviews. I didn't have the time to waste on it which irritated them a bit (said I wasn't taking it seriously enough) but ended up nailing both interviews and the maximum rate level. YMMV.

From: Nate Hill ------------------------------------------------------ Don't hesitate to ask me any questions. ################################# http://chattlibrary.org/jobs/open-data-specialist-ods Open Data Specialist (ODS) The Chattanooga Public Library (CPL) is seeking a qualified candidate for a newly created Open Data Specialist (ODS) position. The successful applicant will join our fantastic digital projects team on The 4th Floor, a 14,000 sq ft public maker/hackerspace in Chattanooga=92s city center. This is a unique library job that combines the diverse talents of a seasoned collection development specialist, a web developer, a data scientist, and a community outreach specialist. The ODS position is a year-long grant funded position awarded to the CPL as one partner in the Open Chattanooga collaborative. With demonstrated success, we intend to extend the position beyond the duration of the grant indefinitely. The ideal candidate for the ODS position is an open data evangelist and an expert who can work with representatives from city government as well as citizen groups like Open Chattanooga to coordinate contributions of data to a public platform or portal. This portal will be hosted by the library and accessed alongside our other digital collections. The portal=92s exceptiona= l construction, performance, and maintenance are all the responsibility of the ODS. The ODS will coordinate with partners to ensure that all data added to the portal is useful, useable, and accessible like all of our other public library collections. While this position does not require the candidate to be a degreed librarian, it is important that the candidate demonstrates an understanding of professional collection development principles, since this government-produced data will be treated as a library collection. The first and most important task the ODS faces is the buildout of the platform itself, as well as the creation of a sustainability plan and documentation of the open data portal as a library collection. Currently, the library has a beta version of a data portal available at opendata.chattlibrary.org; this was created using DKAN. The ODS will either continue work using this platform, or will present a case for the adoption of another open source platform, such as CKAN. Chattanooga Public Library considers this data portal a key piece of our digital infrastructure as we develop more online library services and migrate some of our traditional library services into a networked environment. The ideal candidate will bring innovative and creative thought and workflows to our already robust digital services team. Eventually, the CPL anticipates serving more than just open government data from this platform. A candidate with a passion for developing cutting edge services, skills to build and deliver applications and products, and a desire to have fun working collaboratively with the rest of us will find CPL to be a satisfying work environment. Other qualifications, requirements, and preferences: - Undergraduate degree or equivalent experience in CS or related field - Demonstrated understanding of data structures and APIs - Familiarity with the Drupal CMS and DKAN or with CKAN - Familiarity with the LAMP stack; demonstrated PHP development experience - A strong history of contributions and commitments to open source projects - Please provide a link to your github account or another online portfolio - Bonus points for the applicant with UI / UX / design experience This is a full-time position with benefits. Sorry, this is not a remote work opportunity, you will have to work in the library. The salary for this job is $55,000/year. Email application, resume, and portfolio to cooper
From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ I just broke even (paid for my equipment) in my little bitcoin experiment. Bought my stuff in early September, so just over 60 days to even. Now the question is whether to turn it into USD, or leave it as coin and see if it goes back to $900. Thanks to Matt and Lynn for turning me on to coinbase to make cashing out easy! BITCOIN has been mentioned in the Chugalug thread so are you ready to RUMBLE?

From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ My Lapdock came in today! WOW. What a premium piece of kit for $60. Slim, lightweight, phenomenal build quality, and lots of hacking possibilities. Color me impressed.

From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ Need some help: Got a pfsense box running 1.2.2. It has been in production for about 3 years. Lately it has started to reboot randomly. Fo most of the 3 years it had 6months plus of "uptime" before I would go in and futz with something and reboot. I have replaced 100% of the hardware with the exception of the CF card that loads it into RAM. Boots with no errors and no change in boot speed. I "doubt" that it is the card. I have changed no other settings, and the box is not getting overly hot. Ideas?????? Could something on the network be causing this?

From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ I have been having some issues with Ubuntu 12.10 (desktop 64) hogging resources and acting flaky (basement server) Just switched over to Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon 64, and so far I love it. Won't know about stability and resources for a while, but I am hopeful. This reminds me of the good old days of Ubuntu. Nice clean intuitive interface, fast install, and no glitches so far... At this stage I would give it a +1 Phil Sieg President SeniorTech LLC / snapfōn® www.snapfon.com email@example.com Phone: 423.535.9968 Fax: 423.265.9820 Mobile: 423.331.0725 "The computer is the most remarkable tool that we've ever come up with.

From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ Tim and Jason and the rest of the Chatt*labers did a hell of a job on Saturday. Not only that the space is fantastic. Just wish I could have stayed all day :-( If you are interested in, or believe deeply in the value inherent in the "Maker" movement, PLEASE find a way to be a part of Chatt*lab. It truly takes a village with these sorts of things... No on to some *NIX geekery. At the Chatt*lab there was a Motorola Lapdock (netbook like dock for about 10 different motorola android phones) that was hooked up to a little ARM board (think Pi) and was doing a heroic job of running Lubuntu. These Lapdocks sell for $40-75 on eBay and are very high quality doohickeys. I have been searching for a way to use one (so I can buy one) and after seeing it in action, I just had to have one. I googled around and found out with $20 of connectors and no soldering it can be turned into a battery powered console/KVM for headless systems (of which i have a few). I have ALWAYS wanted a super portable KVM solution for my "kit" and this is the best option I have seen yet, so I ordered one, and all the connectors. Then I started googling the "other uses" that people had found and struck gold. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1281528 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1617684 Both Ubuntu, and Gentoo running on the Motorola phone as a full desktop when it is connected to the Lapdock. These are fairly advanced hacks. A far easier solution is to use one of the "chroot" linux installs on the Play store and launch it from the "webtop" screen. These essentially run *nix virtualized and allow you to VNC into it for desktop access. Prolly a bit slower, but a lot easier to install on the front end without the fear of bricking the phone. The coolest thing is that last generation Motorola smart phones with very good specs are Dirt Cheap, especially if they are Verizon/CDMA units. For $50-100 you can have a dual core with 16gb and a 4.3 inch screen that is a very capable device. Buy one of these and a Dock and you have an Android laptop/tablet for less than HALF the going rate. Further coolness: MOST of the Verizon Motorola phones (if they are 4G) have GSM (think ATT & TMobile) compatibility if you hack the cellular radio. This is a fairly easy hack and means you could have $45 a month unlimited Talk/Text/Internet (through StraightTalk) with 4g speeds for next to nothing (comparatively). Since the Lapdock is a "dumb" accessory you can turn your phone into a 4g laptop for no extra monthly charge or tethering hassle. If anybody is interested in collaborating on this let me know. I have already ordered the "bionic" lapdock, and a Verizon "Droid Bionic" as my test bed. A word of warning: There are at least 3 different Lapdocks, and a dozen different phones that can "dock" but they do not all work together ;-) So a little research is required. It is probable that I will order a couple of more sets of these as presents for my nieces and nephews overseas. at $150 or less "all in" plus some hacking, they make kick ass Christmas gifts for teenagers.

From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Partially thanks to Daniel Applegate, I got roped into being on the advisory board at Chattanooga College (formerly ECPC). Ok. Stop Laughing. 3+ months ago that would have been appropriate snickering. Things have changed. Terry Parker took over a few months ago and has completely rebuilt a jobs skill focused IT program. That means it's mostly MS-centric, with apropos certifications (A+/CompTIA/Microsoft/Cisco..) and focus as well as a two year Associates Degree. All new intructors, new computers, new labs.. an amazing transformation in about 3 months with more on the way. It also includes Linux (Redhat RHCE focused) in the curriculum as a major chunk of time! Mostly as a server it seems... but it's awesome to see it blocked out in the curriculum formerly. Which brings me to: NICE FACILITIES FOR MEETINGS/EVENTS Terry would like to get more cross-pollination of the students with local IT-centric groups, and offers some meeting/classroom space as bait. There has been some talk about a pseudo-formal educational/presentational meeting or more (a half or full day) this might be good for both groups. Of course, his interest is bringing in fresh perspectives, energy and people for his students as well as potential students or people wanting certifications. We get a chance to share Linux/FOSS/etc.. and infect these soon to be corporate M$-Lackeys with a subversive strain of intelligence. Terry is: Terry.Parker@epbfi..... (you can guess the rest) if anyone wants to take him up on that offer and contact him about availability. --Mike--

From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ So I have been mining for a week with 9 ASIC miners with a total of 3Gh/s. I have made approximately $10, and my mint speed is decreasing hourly based on increasing difficulty. It is a cool little rig, and would have been fantastic 6 months ago... my advice: stay away from low end mining gear. I am gonna let then sit here and churn, never cashing in my BTC and *maybe* another bubble will come along and propel me to break even. This was a lark, and I am not sore...Lynn Dixon as much as told me it would be near impossible to hit break even, and he was right. Due to increasing difficulty it is likely that 10 years worth of mining this rig would never put me at break even. At this point a miner needs to be investing in HUNDREDS of GH/s, all for under X dollar threshold. The problem is there is no way to outright BUY the equipment you need without waiting... other than paying a premium on ebay that makes your return on investment unlikely. I am not a hater, but this seems to be a case of too little too late. I can, and do buy into the stock and options market daily, often with a profit realized in a day, a week, or a month. My investment is exceedingly liquid, and does not yield obsolete hardware once I "cash out". I can now claim to have mined those elusive bit-coins, and will shortly return to my regularly scheduled programming.
