Does anyone have some good recommendations for sources of contract sysadmin work (other than personal contacts, who you can rest assured I'm already harrassing ;-)) I'm based in the California Bay Area, but am open to other regions.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

If you have a specific question you could always ask in here. Check out the local LUGs. Check out to see if SAGE, LOPSA, or any other sysadmin group has any local user groups, and ask them. – Zoredache Jun 2 '10 at 20:03

I guess it depends on what area your expertise lies in, but I believe with MS consulting if you become a certified partner, MS will forward professional services requests to you based on area of expertise within MS or geographic location. It's then up to you to close the deal with the prospective client.
