I am available for contract work as a MySQL DBA, specializing in query and schema optimization.
I am here to hopefully get a chance to socialize with some peers. I have been programming, and using Linux for my primary workstation's operating system since 1996, and I'm curious to learn more. I hope to have that opportunity here.
