Maybe I did make the right choice*

Ya know, I often say that I was born jes' a might bit early to have been able to choose some IT job. Heck, nearly ever'thin' dealin' with computers when I was in college had somethin' to do with punchin' bunches of cards and feedin' 'em into IBM 360 mainframes. However, with the advent of PCs, I have found several alternative careers that are now available that I might have chosen had such been available back in the day. However, accordin' to this little ditty I found over at Oz Guru's, computer programmin' ain't really changed all that much over the years.

*Actually, becomin' a best sellin' author was in my mind, even then. I am still hopin' it becomes an eventuality, but if it don't, I still have loads of ammunition in my tear ducts.

After more than 20 years in Unix support, I have decided the main difference between the techy and the luser is that the techy does not throw up his (or her) hands when something goes wrong - instead they look for the power switch.

Seriously, if you can run this blog as well as you do then you are more technical than some of my former students :-)

Sheesh! The most technical thing 'bout this blog is my title graphic. I am quite proud of it. But then again, those Nightly Navel Gazin' Reports™ do sometimes tend to get quite technical, don't they? ;)
