I'd like to do server/network admin after my contract is over so if your
willing to take the time to explain stuff I'll listen.  I'm pretty much
completely self taught so I do things as best I can with what I know and
what I have.

I make roughly 25K a year while in Iraq :P  I'm trying to break even on
satellite and network costs without charging people more than necessary
otherwise the money all has to come out of my own pocket.  The time
involved in setting up and running the network isn't such an issue since
I'm stuck here anyway.
