I am a contractor / architect working on 30,000 sq ft of office space in Hollywood. I am looking to bring on a few guys with some skills in light commercial construction. We are doing a full TI on the spaces, so we will be putting in new metal stud walls and an aluminum system inside the space.

I am looking for motivated guys who can bring some creative solutions to the job site.

I am open to guys just starting learning the trade or who have been in it for years, compensation to match experience.

The work is going on now, so if you are interested, shot me a PM and we can go from there.

Computer guy

Computer consultant specializing in custom built computers
Nick Lana
Los Osos, CA

I do troubleshooting, network set up, overclocking, virus removal/prevention, websites (still learning) and custom built PC's ranging from $400 to $10,000. Advice is free if you ever have a question about a system or hardware let me know. I've probably used it before or something similar and would be happy to assist.

My two most common questions:

AMD or Intel for a processor:
I am not a "fanboi" for AMD or Intel, I build what my customers want at a price they can afford and both companies make fantastic products.

Nvidia or Radeon(AMD) for a Video Card:
Nvidia's tend to run hot, cost a bit more and consume a good bit of power, but their drivers are excellent. Radeon(AMD)'s run fairly cool and are reasonably priced, but they lack driver support for a lot of things.

T/R Welding

I'm posting this for Mark Gyde at T/R Welding in Stanton. I needed my FMF stainless steel pipe welded due to a decent size crack. Not only did he do a killer TIG weld, he fab'ed a custom patch over my weld screw-up. Then he only charged me $30. Mark used his own material and most welders would have cost me twice that much.

If you need custom welding work for anything, give Mark a call at 714-891-0444, He is located in Stanton, CA in Orange County CA.

Looking for work in Reno area

Hi there,
My name is Jeremiah and I just moved down to the Reno/Sparks area from Alaska. I am looking for a job in the automotive field. I have experience from my auto mechanics class in high school. The last job I had was at The Motorcycle Shop in Anchorage, Alaska. My duties there included changing oil and tires. Also working in the parts department helping customers.

A little about me now, I'm eighteen just graduated from high school this June and took an adventure on my DRZ400 up to Alaska from my hometown in southern Oregon. I like adventure and looking for a position for this next year, possibly longer if I find a a good job that treats me right and has good benefits and good pay.

Thank you for your time and please PM me if you know of anyone that is hiring in this area.
