I became a sysadmin in 2007 after about two years of Linux use and Syslab dwelling. My experience at the time included Debian, Gentoo, administration of a small KRB5/AFS installation, and programming (mainly C, Python, and a bit of Bash). I maintained the Gentoo Image from early 2007 through graduation and did various odd jobs with servers, including leading the effort to Kerberize server login.
