Jobs
Used to work at burger king.

Future job president of my company my inside logo is the quality of a alien ware with the price of a dell. But then again I can't say that in my ads cause that'd cause dell and alienware to sue, and poeple that don't know about those look at them. Honsetly I don't intend on having many jobs where i'm below sombody. Thats why my business is opening up this summer IE around june or july.

As i said, it depends on what i am doing. Also, with some projects it requires more tech monkeys, so i will usaully hire 1-2.

For example we had a client who had a fairly large cluster in a datacenter, they wanted us to set it up with a number of things;

( Rough overview of a job paying at $2,500 an hour )

High level security - APF, honeypots, multiple VPN's
File replication - backups, mysql db's, mssql db's
Load balancing across all servers.
Accurate routing tables - Routers, switches.

We had to setup this cluster remotely, from new zealand. The cluster was back in the USA sitting in a DC.

I charged them $2,500 an hour, they said it was cheap. They had security consultants who cost $20,000 an hour..... These geeks come in, sit down with his laptop and run a fancy script. I don't think those guys like being called a script kiddie :P

It depends on the company, if it is a big company wanting a job done properly they will pay whatever. This cluster was being developed for a telecom system to hold peoples info. However there was compatibility issues, where there different systems were running dif databases... mysql and mssql.
