If you're looking for a student assistant for next semester, I can recommend someone wholeheartedly. She has excellent Linux, Windows, and troubleshooting skills and is also good in "soft skills" such as user hand-holding. I can't hire her again for reasons that have nothing to do with her previous job performance.
Anyway, if you're interested, email me privately and I'll put you in touch.
And Happy Holidays, everyone!
