These are great I especially love the comment on Unix. When I first started we learned emacs and vim commands and I was just like “wow I’m never gonna plug into a mainframe and need to use an editor like this”, but I use vim all the time even if it’s just to edit docker files and whatnot. Definately worth it to learn the terminal.

Yeah, I'll add it to the list of "times that I questioned things that I really should not have".

That can sit right on the shelf right next to...

"ALGEBRA?! When am I ever going to need that!?"

🤦‍♂️ My job is now quite literally, algebra.

Bravo, Lou.
