Special request

Hey guys,

Just hoping people will send me pointers to any IT / Sysadmin positions
they come across that might be relevant.  Been working at an unnamed
government department for the last 6 months, and it's really not working
out lately.  Not only is it not taking my career in a direction I want,
they have let go almost half of the IT contractors (while the full-timers
are goofing off, on leave, etc.) during the busiest part of the year.   As
a result, the physical demands of my job (which I have been coping with OK)
have more than doubled.  I have also lost all faith in the IT organization
itself as well as the culture.  In a nutshell, if you are a unilingual IT
consultant, your perceived value is somewhere between that of the parking
lot administrator and the cleaning staff.  On a good day.

At any rate, I think it is time for a change. I have grown as much as this
environment will allow me to grow (which was not much), and it is time for
me to move on while I still have my health and sanity.  Again, any pointers
