Pet peeve of the day: explaining to Windows people that I don't have to tweak the memory of the Solaris server every time they start up a new application, or turn off an old one.
"How much phyiscal memory does it have?" "Never mind." "But, i'll be adding..." "I know. Don't worry about it." "But (bla bla bla) two gigs .." "Don't worry about it."
Actually I'm taking entirely the wrong approach, I should be saying, "Thank you for telling me, I'll make the necessary adjustments to Solaris."
