Yep, last time I looked, I was female! And I've been a *nix-ster since 1985. I actually switched career paths because of UNIX. Long story, but I needed a break before starting medical school, one thing led to another, and I ended up in a created-just-for-me position at the furniture store chain where I worked [doing data entry] while in college. I transitioned them off their IBM System/3s, creating a multi-location and, of course, multi-user UNIX system. I did everything--installing hardware, administering the system, programming, all of it. That was my favorite job ever.

I occasionally ruminate over the fact that I always intended to be a physician, and I essentially blew 5 years of hard work [A student, with honors] in pre-med, but for the most part I'm fine with it. When something comes up, like the brain tumor I had, I do find myself wishing I had gone on with med school so I could be more involved in my care, but those thoughts are few and far between.
