I'm one of those lucky folk that get to work from home as I wish. Today is one of those days.

As already mentioned in my profile, I'm a Unix and Linux system administrator for a large department of the United States government. I manage roughly 120 different servers, mostly comprised of RHEL, with a good mix of HP-UX and Solaris. There are Windows servers that I have to maintain as well, unfortunately. Thankfully, there's only a handful of those.

From left to right:
Thinkpad T61 running Debian Sid. It's powering the monitor to its right as well. It's my personal machine for a number of different projects and development (yeah, I'm a Python developer too).

The HP Mini 110 netbook is in the middle. It's running Ubuntu 9.10. It's my documentation machine, usually for on the road stuff.

The Dell D830 laptop is to the most right, and behind me. It is my GFE (government furnished equipment) running Windows. When that laptop is in the house, it's the only computer running Windows.

I would take a picture of the data center, to show you what a MAN'S datacenter should look like, but then I'd probably lose my job. Plus, that would mean I would have to go into the office.

You have an awesome job. I took a class on Suse 11, but that's as far as my Linux knowledge goes.

Yep, I'm at a govt conference all week today training users on the website I maintain. I was looking at those HP110's and Dell 10's online today during some downtime. I may have to spring for one of those.
