[PLUG] Job opportunities with unspecified hosting company. Chili festival in close proximity?

I hope this isn't inappropriate for this list... I can't find any indications that it is yet.  I apologize if it is.

I was contacted by a recruiter looking for Linux Admins, etc.  The Admin positions range from $50K to $85 and there are some higher end positions that tip over into 6 figures (Jobs with the word "Architect" somewhere in the title.).  I'm not available because he's working for a client who is hiring in Texas and my wife is allergic to Texas.  But I thought, hey, people move from this area to Florida all the time:  Why not Texas?  Two positions that he thought were maybe in my reach (therefore, they are *not* the 6-figure jobs) are below.  I think he may have mentioned something about the his client providing some help with the move, but my recollection is fuzzy on that point.  Sorry.  His contact information is below as well.  If you're interested in a move give him a call or drop him an email. 

Mention me and I might get a referral bonus.  Yaay.

By the way, if anyone was able to record the audio of the Bash lecture, I'd really like to get my hands on a copy.  I was unable to attend.  My wife and two friends bullied me into all-you-can-eat ribs and then barely a rack, between them.  :(
