Heh heh, Black belt, hacky sack, Xbox360s... Sounds like a fun place to work. I've got a question about this:

Do the 360s run through a Linux firewall? :)

Wow, this place seems to be a rocking place to work. Just pardon my ignorance, what do a simple linux user like me can have a black belt degree ? Ninja degree ?

If you do system administration for the company you work for, your situation might be an opportunity to introduce linux. While this in itself can be a daunting task, having experience at a company comitted to a Unix/Linux infrastructure is the best learning environment. I actually have a lot of respect for Unix users that cut their teeth on pre-Linux era Unix shells because the learning curve was a lot steeper back then.

Looks like an interesting role, however the pay doesn't really grab my attention.

I've got 14 years experience across mainframe, x86, solaris, as/400, and aix. sorry no xbox experience though... don't really go for the games platforms myself... cheap bang for buck though, i've heard they make good web servers. I'd prefer a SunFire T2000 anyday though.

... What would a true penguin want with an XBox?

(Swish!) Ste-rike three!

Pardon me, good sir or madam, but you just failed to get the time-o-day from the sort of person you might have wished to attract, e.g. giblet1973, ... and you did attract a nibble from someone else who will do anything for a green-card.

Ask your dad to write the next ad...
