So, I’m sitting there, minding my own business because it’s towards the end of the work day and I just want to get home. Then an email comes in, another security audit is coming down the pipe. No big deal, been through them before, but they are a pain in the ass.
I submitted this over at Soup’s BSDHound.com but I’m such a literary genius, I thought I would put it here too:
A lot of people try to claim various things are the “mother of invention”, but as ?n*x or ?BSD admins, we know the truth. And that truth is…. LAZINESS. Yep, if it weren’t for lazy admins, we wouldn’t have half of the automation scripts we have today. This affliction is what finally forced me to learn some Perl.
