During my years as a Unix Systems Administrator and Quality Assurance Engineer, one of the most indispensable tools in my Unix tool box has been Perl. A Perl "power programmer" I am not, though almost daily I find new ways to incorporate simple (and sometimes not so simple) Perl logic into my work, which results in increased productivity and efficiency.

Ok, so you know grep, awk and sed. You can ls and cd your way anywhere on your computer. You can even eject your cdrom by typing several letters instead of pressing one button. But here's a fresh*,new**, and perhaps even slightly humorous take on several of your all time favorites.
Nestled between Proprietary and Freedomberg, Opensville is a utopia. Everyone who lives in the adjacent cities spends their free time in Opensville. The parks are beautiful, the shopping is amazing, and the nights are pure Vegas. Sounds like a great place, huh?

So, you've just installed Ubuntu 7.04, otherwise known as the "Feisty Fawn" release of everyone's favorite (for now) flavor of Linux. You booted the installation disc, looked around the test environment to discover that your hardware was working, and double-clicked the Install icon on the desktop.
Critical reception of Vista is cool, at best. Yet I know Microsoft didn’t set out to create a mediocre product. They have a lot of smart, passionate people who really want to create industry leading products. It is just that, on their flagship product, they haven’t.
I’ve just completed my upgrade from Ubuntu’s Edgy Eft to Fiesty Fawn. I’m running this on a Lenovo x60s with an Intel Centrino Duo processor (1.66Ghz each), 1.5 GB of RAM and the Intel i915 chipset.
Unlike my last experience, this one went very, very smooth. In fact, there were no hiccups, glitches or bugs that I’ve found so far and I’ve tested all of my critical stuff.

A bane of the system administrator’s (SA) job is on-call work. You either end up lugging a laptop or making a dash for the nearest machine when things go wrong. . It would be nice to have something that was a bit more portable but had enough tools to fix most issues.
