A few days ago, I was going few some old links I had saved in the past. In my browser, there is a dedicated bookmark folder for those links. Its name is “Old stuff.”
I found something I completely forgot about: Nine traits of the veteran Unix admin.
I was a Unix admin more than thirty years ago. As I wrote yesterday, I am sure I would not be able to do that job today, but it was amusing.
Those years had an incredible impact on the way I approach problem-solving. Without any doubt, I can say that what I am today is possible because of those early years of my career.
I reread the article. I found it as attractive as it was the first time I read it.
I found one of the traits so true: We prefer elegant solutions.
I live that principle every single day.
