I have been a Systems Administrator for many years now. I started out not being into computers but one of my last tours of duty I found myself faced with learning how to use them. Long story short, crap rolls down hill and since I was the lowest rank when the equipment showed up it was quickly assigned to be my task.
I caught the bug quickly and deeply. I even went as far as buying a Zenith SuperSport 8088 laptop. Back then the software on hand was dbaseIII plus, SuperCalc and MultiMate. I also got into the console and loved Unix.
Since then obviously technologies have changed and despite my dislike for the GUI and even more the Microsoft approach, I saw the potential and eased into that realm. Taking some of my Unix habits, when Powershell came along I was all in.
