# Notice (Oct 19/05): So ends my stay here on Blogger. This morning Google implemented an anti-spam 'feature' that forces me to answer a challenge phrase when I want to post to my own blog. No notice of the change, nothing. Worse is that it doesn't even work! I type the phrase, submit, "An error occured", post deleted. Damn you, Google. Chances are I will revive my blog somewhere else, sometime soon. I'll post the new coordinates here as soon as they become available. (BTW, I'm unable to post anything to my RSS stream, so I'd appreciate it if readers could spread the word and ask people to take a look at this notice)
Update (Oct 19/05, ~noon): After a frustrating few hours (and not just trying out alternatives to Blogger), I've decided that this is a good time to take a break from all this. A day? A week? Who knows. But I need to step away from it before I pass a heavy magnet over the whole mess.
Update 2: According to this post, the reason I'm seeing the CAPTCHA (challenge phrase) is that Blogger has classified my blog as spam. Thanks. User for five years and now I'm spam. I searched the Blogger site, but there is no mention of how to get the spam flag turned off. There is also no way of contacting anyone at Blogger. Wow. Spam they say I am, so spam I must be. Maybe it is time to take a break.
The job is sysadmin-like. You'd be in charge of maintaining 3 Redhat Enterprise Linux IBM eBlade Servers which provide services web-based services for the campus. When not maintaining the servers, you'd be coding in PHP and/or Perl working on separate small projects each involving setting up a test environment on the server and then later putting it into production. You'd also working with Oracle Application Server, JDeveloper, and J2EE. Honestly, the nice part about the job is that you're never really doing the same thing.
- You must strictly be considered a student (ie. registered)
- You must be very comfortable working in Linux: installing it, setting it up on machines, installing/building software, using package systems, building kernels, setting up devices, etc.
- You must have some experience in either PHP or Perl (pref. both).
Database programming in either or both scripting languages an asset.
It would be for 21 hours (3 days: Mon/Wed/Fri) but that's negotiable.
Anybody that's interested or have questions please send me their CV.
