->Subject: [nycbug-talk] OpenBSD Temp Job
->I'm a BSD newbie with a request which I hope will be 
->appropriate for this list:  
->I need to hire some short-term OpenBSD expertise.  If
->you or anyone you know in the OpenBSD community needs
->some extra cash and fits the below profile, perhaps
->you can forward this message to them.
->Job: Set up software on OpenBSD laptop
->Start: ASAP - Early January
->Duration: 5 - 12 hours, at your convenience
->Qualifications: Know KDE, FVWM well.  Be able to 
->internationalize KDE (or offer internationalized 
->alternatives).  Crypto/security competence a plus.
->Salary: Name it
->I would like to use OpenBSD for my field laptop, but
->with no nix experience it is taking me too long to
->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
->for someone who knows this stuff well; I'll look over
->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.
->b.  PIM/Office Software
->KOffice is great, but I need to add Arabic, Persian,
->Chinese, and Russian fonts and need to be able to
->store address/calendar information in those languages.
-> Need to be able to print hi-res text in said
->languages, create PDFs with characters from said
->c.  Web Design
->Install web design software that is usable by beginner
->(have used the Macromedia packages, but understand
->they're not available for *nix).  Nothing fancy, just
->optimize images for web display and do basic layout.
->d.  Sound
->I am using a Toshiba Portege 7010CT.  Need to get
->sound functional if possible (maestro2e) -- import and
->export .mp3s to/from cassette tape and/or radio.  May
->involve enabling drivers in kernel or playing with
->e.  fvwm
->Configure the thing so that my windows aren't
->unbearably ugly.
->f.  Crypto
->Configure software to encrypt selected directories. 
->(I am aware that OpenBSD doesn't have the best 
->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!?
->New Yahoo! Photos - easier uploading and sharing.
