Hi guys,
	The company I work for, M5 Networks, is looking for a QA person for our 
VoIP system.  The system itself runs on Linux servers and Cisco IP 
phones.  The short version is that we'd like someone with a passing 
familiarity with networking, Linux and ideally programming.  We're not 
expecting you to be able to tell us what the 20th byte of the TCP header 
is used for, or be able to enumerate every function in the standard C 
library (though bonus points if you can of course).  You can find out 
more about us at http://www.m5networks.com.au, and our US arm (for whom 
you'd be working in a business organisational sense) at 
http://www.m5net.com.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions 
or expressions of interest.

every cliché in the book):
