Times when I am truly happy

Wednesday 17 March 2004

Charles considers what his time is worth, and shares this great jwz quote:

I hate [sysadmin crap]. I have always hated it. Always. If you made a Venn diagram, there would be two non-overlapping circles, one of which was labeled, “Times when I am truly happy” and the other of which was labeled, “Times when I am logged in as root, holding a cable, or have the case open.”

Amen.

Don't know what I was thinking.
