Reminds me of the Russian Space Station in Armageddon

From - overheard in remote class:
Over the phone I hear a strong Russian accent: “Dees instruooctions not correkt. Dey are wrong! Dees system is broken. It kannot be used. It is garbage.”
Then I hear a second voice, American and slightly smug: “Well, Alexei, mine worked just fine. Maybe you should check your typing.”
The Russian voice says, “My typing is perfekt. … … [softly] Oh!” [long silence] “Ok, your system ees now working.”

IT Generalists

Scaling lessons from Google’s CIO — Cloud Computing News:
"In the question and answer period that followed, Fried elaborated on these concepts, telling someone that IT generalists are probably born, not made. He said at Google, the company looks for folks that want to keep improving their skills, and even has a program to help give those people the tools to be better engineers when they find those traits in employees. He said the Google culture is one where the general engineers who understand the system have a lot of input and power, which is a cultural shift that organizations that want to build at scale should try to implement."
We are all becoming generalists at our company. When there are so few of us, you have to learn a little bit of everything.
