[Ubuntu-US-CA] SCALE 11x!

Hi Philip,

My name is Peter Michael Sullivan; hard-core Linux Geek & Nerd - Ubuntu
mostly as that is what I have to support w/ so many installs done over the
years for non-Geeks.  While I have little on the list that you need (my
only laptop w/ a working screen (2 do not although I use DVI out for them,
and it's not very powerful either) other than power-strips (plenty),
Ethernet cables I can make ad nauseum and I have a 4-port switch but I see
you need a 5-port switch.

I can however commit full-time and having some 36yrs experience in live
theatre (first 10) and then as a post-production sound designer / editor /
mixer here in Hollywood (the past 26yrs) I am well acquainted w/ setting up
& taking down of tech in an orderly and efficient manner.  Also, if you
plan on doing any kind of audio / video displaying, well, that's right up
my alley as well.

I too, however it dates me, have been using Ubuntu since 6.x; though ask me
to say anything coherent (I was just a Linux n00b then after all) about
anything pre-7 and I'll struggle.  That being said I am now a 4-star Geek
and have really grown to appreciate - as I started off in rpm-Land - the
Debian based way as chasing down dependencies got old very quickly.  God
bless Apt / Aptitude!

Anyhow, if you want someone quick on the uptake and quite efficient then
count me in!  My CAT-5e cabling is blue, not black (nor orange!) so just
tell me how many and what length and away I go.  Also, I have an APC line
conditioner/UPS (I'm into it for the conditioning as complex tech doesn't
like dirty power as you know) that might be useful (850W load maximum) as
power in venues like this is generally quite dirty and this can cause
Murphy's Law & pesky little gremlins to show up; always at exactly the
wrong moments too - see Murphy's Law for that.
