Nice article: Nine traits of the veteran Unix admin by Paul Venezia. Checking my own style:
- sudo versus su - .. I'm no fan of sudo command ; sudo command ; sudo command so I lean towards sudo -i which is functionally the same as su -.
- vim or vi. Yes. Preferably vim.
- greedy or non-greedy regular expressions? That is a yes.
- smart and robust scripts for repeating tasks are so much better. Yes.
- oh yes.
- sometimes .. although repeated questions about the system environment also mean it may be way too complicated or the communications with your users suck.
- oh yes. Not only in unix admin work, also in security work.
- not commenting on this matter. yes.. on certain windows admin work, not on user interface annoyances
- rebooting isn't problem solving, it's bringing a system to a known state.
