Hello Danny,

How are you?  Thanks so much for contacting me!  Yes, Of course I would
be willing help you out on this.  =) I actually am a member of the
Ubuntu Mass Loco but my schedule has been so hectic that I have not been
able to make it for one reason or another.  Additionally I am an ardent
supporter, admin, advocate, financial supporter of FOSS in all forms.
My experience with both the closed and  source world will certainly help
to articulate the supernumerary reasons why they should go with FOSS.
Actually they could go 100% FOSS on the whole solution - networking,
security, firewall, etc. =)  Please do give me a call on my cell number
or shoot me an email and we can figure out what the next steps are to

Also if I end up working on this as a token of appreciation, I will give
you the referral bonus indicated on my website.  If you are not fond of
Apple hardware (neither am I) then I can get something else or put
RockBox on it.  =P  http://referral.evolutionaryit.com  Thanks so much!

Talk to you,
Joseph Guarino
