schestowitz The job I do in the weekends is one that I got partly thanks
to nepotism. It's a person whom I've known for a few years after he
tried to employ me. It's an open source consultancy that's one of the
leading in the UK and it offers services to companies that make use of
open source software (a field where I'm pretty well known). The client I
get assigned to has about 270 servers down in a London-based datacentre.
It requires Feb 25 07:53
schestowitz monitoring. If an alert comes up I need to respond by
accessing the servers and addressing the issue, sometimes escalating to
the right person. Feb 25 07:53
schestowitz It's essentially similar to the job I was doing at
Manchester Computing for years. This one pays better and even with just
2 days of work per week I can cover all my expenses and work exclusively
from home, which is a major plus. It does not interfere with my other
online activities, which in part contribute to my daytime job too
because as a hobby I promote open source software. Feb 25 07:53
schestowitz If there's anything I ever get out of my dedication to FOSS,
it's stuff like that. I don't actually get paid and never was paid for
advocacy... but it's so much fun Feb 25 07:54

Flounder needs a Roy Schestowits look alike rubber doll.
His obsession is simply scaring.

Not quite, O Illogical One. I cared about the poster's unnecessary interest
in Roy. But I don't care whether Roy is employed or not.
Flattery will get you everywhere.

Can I borrow yours?

Not me sMarti but since you asked, how come it's not an obsession when
kind words and good luck are wished to Roy like I did when he graduated?
Chew on that thought for a while.
It brings tears to his puppy dog eyes just to see his former master's
I don't believe Slimeowitz at all.
I think he is bull crapping again to throw the trolls off the scent.
I bet s/h/it already has one. Goes to sleep at night saying Roy's name
over and over, then has sweet dreams. What upsets s/hit is waking to
reality: a cold, lifeless puppet.

It's not the first time. Flatso was all over Terry Porter for a long
time, and even can't help s/h/itself every once in awhile from showing
that the flame hasn't completely died.

Roy & Terry must have *really* got under the troll's skin, if Flatfarce is
*still* banging on about them.
Don't confuse a wintroll with facts, its mind is already made up.

Do you follow Roy in the Gay Man Express too?
I can see the conga line now!

This old clown bangs the NG in his wheelchair, the only excitement in
his worthless life.
What the hell does this Roy do that someone would make a stupid post
like that? The only good thing Roy has done is stop posting. If him
getting a job stopped that, then it was a good thing. You'll know when
he gets laid-off, because he will be back posting again.
Roy has moved on to greener pastures where his SPAM gets him more return
for the $$$
More fools on the bandwagon?
His IRC is a site to behold.
It's like a freaking can of Planter's nuts with the lid hanging off.
Real hard core kooks.
