Any work lined up yet IT related or otherwise?

Nice, Christchurch is good and usually not too hot. They (flowery, city promoter types) call it the garden city and it has the benefit of housing not being stupidly inflated like in Auckland (though it is starting to get more reasonable).

In light of your last post this is probably no use but this is what I got when I did 5 minutes worth of searching in the IT area:
School Job: Looks part time but they might know of more
SEEK jobs database and employment advice
IT Jobs in Christchurch.
SEEK IT - Job Search. Find IT jobs using multiple job search options.

Just looking at this job SEEK jobs database and employment advice is $40,000 - $45,000 allot or about right? (generalising obviousley)

$40k is about right for that kind of roll (generalizing) you get a bit more for Linux knowledge as that is currently less common. It also comes with a car which is nice.
