Submission + - Nine Traits of the Veteran Unix Admin (infoworld.com)

snydeq writes: Deep End’s Paul Venezia offers a field guide to understanding your resident Unix veteran, laying out the nine traits common to this grizzled, hardcore set. From not using sudo, to wielding regular expressions like weapons, to generally assuming the problem resides with whomever is asking the question, each trait is key to ‘spotting these rare, beautiful creatures in the wild,’ Venezia writes. ‘If some of these traits seem anti-social or difficult to understand from a lay perspective, that's because they are. Where others may see intractable, overly difficult methods, we see enlightenment, borne from years of learning, experience, and overall, logic.’
