Mind that age!

This blog post is 17 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

Adminspotting Do you remember the ending of the film Trainspotting? It starts "Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television. ..."

Now someone has done the equivalent based on the job of a system administrator a.k.a. sysadmin. This one starts "Choose no life. Choose sysadminning. Choose no career. Choose no family. ..." And they've prepared this as a t-shirt and are trying to sell it.

It's dark, depressing even, but very funny. I'm not a sysadmin but I admire the people who are.
