10 things I love about UNIX System Administration

  1. Working from the command line.
  2. Working remotely using telnet and then ssh.
  3. The feeling of making things work.
  4. I still remember setting up sendmail. (mail server)
  5. Creating virtual web domains in Apache.
  6. Writing scripts that automate tasks.
  7. Creating scripts for web statistics (long before Google analytics).
  8. Securing a Linux server. (never being hacked)
  9. Being root is power!
  10. Sun Solaris (not using it any more).
