We used to have more old school UNIX admins and I always appreciated having 
people around who've probably forgotten more than I'll ever know when thorny 
issues of system administration came up.  Though I've solved more of those by 
furiously shaking Google than asking questions here.  I think better search 
engines have done as much to reduce the need for a local user group as Linux 
itself improving.

I noticed the mention of OS X.  I've been using Linux as an Open Directory 
server for a number of years.  That's a fun setup to muddle through.


So I'm ugly.  So what?  I never saw anyone hit with his face.
