U.S. Students Shun Computer Science, Engineering

FuShock Re:On the bright side, (1141 comments)

I am a Computer Information Systems Major and a small local University in the Midwest. In my "Advanced UNIX Administration" class I have been asked how to change Dir, startx, and other assorted hilarity. At first it pissed me off that I had to stop playing Maelstrom and reading slashdot to help these people do simple things. They dont even try. All they wanted was someone to do the work for them. But what the hay, I have been using UNIX, *BSD, and linux for years. I don't want to be another computer guy with a stick up my ass. So I help them with thier problems, go back to my workstation, and kill -9 a few of their pros/reboot their computers/echo "hello human" to their console/and so on. Life is good when sshd in turned on by default and everyone but me uses password as their root password.
