To be a SysAdmin all you gotta do is this:
- Read the documentation
- Yell "FUCK" at computer
- Copy and paste
I've been doing this for over three years trust me.
@amic the big same
@amic how do i become the legendary cisadmin
@ida become a techbro that uses reddit daily to talk about how he's a skeptic and wants those gosh darn sjws out of gaming
@amic i would sooner die then go back to that life, ive tasted it once and i want to shoot 13 year old techbro me in the fucking face
@ida The Roblox Skeptic (Ida's old username)
This is 13 year old me too
Is there a like
Edgy techbro to mogai pipeline?
@cant_into fukin probably i know tons of people who are the same, most of them are like super communist now too
@ida but mooom, I don't wanna be a communist /s
@amic Also works for programming
@amic SysAdmin for ~10 years, can confirm, job involves lots of swearing.
@amic Advanced sysadmins start learning other languages, just so they can swear at the computer in the native language of whoever developed the stupid piece of crap software they're trying to get working.
@amic step two is VERY important and I cannot stress this enough
100% accurate... although frequently.. I'm copying and pasting from documentation I wrote these days..
@amic You need to know how to google shit though
@amic overall, it's a well paid job, just for googling and yelling *FUCK*
@amic Swapping in "SHIT" every few times is pretty effective too!
@amic You forgot
- Reading logs and tpcdump/strace outputs
- Spend time on IRC
- Reporting bugs for Free (as in freedom of speech) Software
This gives me hope
@amic I'm 30 years in and the quality of documentation continues to decline. Also in the early days we didn't have copy and paste either. The rest hasn't changed much.
- Discover that the documentation is full of lies and probably written by people who despise the very concept of joy
- Yell “FUCK” some more
@amic and then run "sudo !!"
And if you're not the sole admin for the system...
@amic RTFM, Swear, FTFM, submit pull request, copy and paste.
