    The only snag here is that I live somewhere in Africa.
    Hope you find your man!!

  • Jo

    What you guys need is a “database connection error specialist”

  • swehes

    @Jo – With all the database connection error they have been having that should be explain itself. ;) However it most likely is due to the amount of hits the database gets. So there is a need to allow for more connections between database and website.

  • StevO

    I can do some of those things but I don’t even have half the experience. I got a lot of work to do.

  • Bobbo

    Heck no. It would be fun, for sure, but for how long
    ?
    I don’t have faith in this being a lucrative long term career move.
