Anyone else here read "The Cuckoo's Egg" by Cliff Stoll? I think it had an effect on me, reading it quite young. It probably planted the seeds that ultimately led me here.

I packing my very battered copy and seriously regretting not picking up a new one when I had the chance.


@Catpult Yes. I think I would have had far less interest in Linux beyond "Oh that's neat" without it. I still catch myself trying to type the `ps` incantation from the book every now and then.
