Please disregard this. Do not send money; I am not available to help with SCO or Linux.
Here's what I can help with:
Linux, Unix and Mac OS X, networking problems, scripting, website programming and many other things. There are other pages here that detail those things but you may already know that I can help.
Here's what to do:
Just use Paypal to send me $60.00, the minimum charge for my services. Don't worry; if I can't help I will quickly refund your money.
This is NOT for telephone support. See below for that.
Otherwise, please understand that I get many email requests, and I need to pay my bills just as everyone else does.
You should expect an answer within 24 hours, though I often answer within minutes. If you have not heard from me after 24 hours, send another email, a fax, or call me. Something has gone wrong; I would not take that long to answer you.
Please note that I am located in the Eastern Time zone and do need to sleep every now and then. I am also often available on weekends, but expect a slower response.
If you are going to need regular email help, you would do best to choose a support contract - it's far less expensive!
If you need telephone support, you need to send $100.00 after we have established that I can help you. Again, that's a minimum charge. Make sure you know that I CAN help and am available to take calls before sending money - the easiest way to do that is with an email (and no, of course you don't pay $60 to ask that!).
($100 telephone consultation)
The minimum charge for a session where I log into your system(s) is $150.00. Note: I cannot "dial-in" to modems - internet access is necessary.
You can also reach me with Skype "pcunix". The only problem with that is that sometimes I leave my computer downloading something or doing some big file conversion and I forget to set Skype to tell you that. The same thing happens with Gmail Chat - you certainly are welcome to try to reach me that way but I may not be "here" even when it says that I am.
