It’s somewhat curious to me that Joel Spolsky, who has clearly spent a lot of time thinking about how to get the most and best effort out of his programmers, apparently doesn’t believe in professional systems administration, instead indulging in kludgey one-off band-aide fixes for his company’s problems.

There’s a rant in here about how coders think about and relate to systems administration, but I’m still getting over this viral thing, so I’m going to save it for the moment.
