the life of a sysadmin is intense

Today I have used the following skills to debug and fix problems:

  • firewalls
  • SMTP mail
  • DNS
  • ICMP
  • KVM virtual machines
  • Postfix config
  • Apache config
  • MySQL database administration
  • Debian-specific systems administration
  • hardware diagnosis
  • hardware RAID config
  • ext3/4 filesystem options
  • dump and restore. Yes, really.
  • Perl
  • Ruby
  • Chef recipes and templates
  • and probably a bunch of things I forgot.

(Edit: while writing this I was thinking that at least I hadn’t had to debug the phone system. Nope. Add Asterisk and SIP to the list.)
