Light freelance contracting gig

Here's your semi-annual notice that I'm looking for contractors! Those of
you on the list will know that I post basically the same message about once
or twice a year. :)

I'm looking for someone interested in (mostly) WordPress freelance work and
in Linux server administration. Also sometimes there's custom PHP coding
mixed in, and then there's the really random stuff for some of my random
clients, but I won't get into that...

Generally speaking, I want a little bit of extra help monitoring our
existing systems. There's no requirement for you to "do" anything at any
particular time. My arrangement with my current and former contractors has
been: You get added to our  email ticket support system and I add your
email address to Nagios (which we use to monitor or servers). Then, if an
issue does come up, AND you are available AND you are able / willing to fix
whatever is wrong, then you can jump in and fix the problem, whatever that
might be - and I pay you for your time. Just as simple as that.

We're currently managing about 15 servers, all of which are CentOS, and all
of which are in the cloud. 2 of these are running cPanel, and the rest just
run basic LAMP stacks without any GUI. We utilize 2 main cloud providers,
as well as a smaller 3rd provider that acts as our secondary MX, DNS, and
server that runs our support system. (We use osTicket for our support

If you're interested, give me a shout here, or email me:
david[at]developcents[dot]com. Apologies in advance if you see this
multiple times - I'm going to cross-post in a few different places.
