in reply to How to deal with Perl Demons

Sounds like you have a case of "admin is an admin for the money". This is a matter that is bothered me for a while now, there are so many ppl in the industry now a'days (I say with only 5 years xp, hehehe) that are not really into what they are doing. I think it should be a policy that hence forth no company shall hire an admin that does not have at least a 5 machine personal network at home, and neglects friends/girlfiends/family to sit at a computer and be a nerd. Any person (in my judgement) that is this type of admin would have to know the wonders of perl & unix.

So my advice for you, talk to you boss, have him fire the admin and hire someone who knows the power of perl and unix :)

But then agian, thats just my opinion :)
