Are STONITH and shebangs your thing? Do you sweat that if you do your job right, you'll end up with a perpetual motion machine? Can you teach us any new "man page" jokes?
Can you show mass comm infrastructure who's boss? Do you troubleshoot from the hip? Are you a spam musubi aficionado?
Could you speed up Google's multi-millisecond response times? Do you think "performant" should be an adjective in the OED? Is a 1GB L1 cache a good idea or a bad idea?
