While we're job-posting, I'm looking for a cleared SysAdmin to work  
in our Columbia, MD headquarters.  This is a fun and cushy job, but  
the lucky individual gets to report to me (caveat emptor).  The  
official job description is listed below, but I'd like to summarize  
with a focus on the following "skills":

- start-up mentality (works hard, plays hard)
- loves Linux/BSD but understands that Windows is a necessary evil
- enjoys working with users, networks, SANs, etc.
- good with installing/customizing FOSS
- has a scripting language at their ready disposal (Perl/PHP/Ruby)
- TS/SCI with NSA Lifestyle Polygraph

And the official posting...
