->Subject: [nycbug-talk] OpenBSD Temp Job
->I'm a BSD newbie with a request which I hope will be 
->appropriate for this list:

->figure out how to install and configure the software. 
->I'm inviting someone with experience running OpenBSD
->for office (email, spreadsheet, etc) purposes to come
->in and install/configure software on my laptop.  The
->specific requirements are listed below.  I'm looking

->their shoulder taking notes.  I would expect that they
->run OpenBSD currently on one or more of their systems.
->a.  Email.
->Text-based client such as Mutt is fine.  Must be able
->to handle POP/IMAP over SSL and text in Arabic, Farsi,
->Chinese, and Russian.  Import my old messages (mbox
->format) and integrate with PGP/GPG.

->Chinese, and Russian fonts and need to be able to
->store address/calendar information in those languages.

->languages, create PDFs with characters from said
->c.  Web Design

->partion-encryption functionality.)
->g.  Wireless/Modem
->Get Cisco 350 aironet pcmcia card up and running,
->recommend modem card and get PPP functional.
->Name your salary.  I prefer to pay for results as
->opposed to by the hour.  This is a pretty basic job
->but you'll need to work quickly (or cheaply, take your
->pick) and show me what you're doing.  I can meet you
->anywhere in NY or DC or points between.  
->Do you Yahoo!?
