I have been reading Geeks by Jon Katz. I have not been a big fan of Katz in the past, but I have really enjoyed this book. It is so easy to get absorbed by the lives of the two geeks and relate their experiences to my own.
I will go back and re-read some of his articles on Slashdot and think about them more closely.
As a side note, the decision has come down that we will be replacing our Netware 5 servers with Linux/Samba servers the next time around. Our Netware Admin is fed up with the horrible problems in upgrading our Netware 4.11 servers to version 5.
I personally like the way NDS works. I really think that Novell should really consider opening up the source for NDS. I will be a little sad to see it go. However, Admining Linux boxen via ssh should be no problem. I would actually prefer that method.
