SysAdmins and other UNIX evilness

A field guide to UNIX Sysadmins.

Here is a slide from a LISP nut that explains what ails the Unix and C community. It's part of a discussion (circa 1994) on how to promote LISP because LISP is all that.

What's interesting is that the problems he mentions are still true. Only slightly more interesting is that LISP still hasn't caught on.

Scholarly work

We used to be like this, discussing things like what color a watermelon is before you cut it open, how to peel a banana, how to find a lost person in a grocery store, chicken or egg, and just how many monkeys it takes to equal The Bard.

But leave it to NASA to try to figure out what happens when you pop a water balloon in space. I can't believe my taxes paid for this research, and I didn't get to do any of it.
