CSI, the forgotten show

I always forget "CSI" is on. I end up watching "Will & Grace" ("Hey! Look at us! We used to be really funny, but now we're just self-consciously clever, and actually a little mean and vindictive but not really in a fun way. Oh yeah, and some of us are gay!") instead. Oh well. I'm watching it now. Grissom is so freakin' cool.

To tie into my earlier rant, CSI is in many ways an ideal sysadmin show. What I mean by that is it's all about troubleshooting and figuring out what's really going on. I believe the part of your brain that makes a good sysadmin is also what makes one a good mechanic, doctor, or forensic scientist. People don't tend to think of those things together, but if you look at the metaknowledge the tasks require, they're the same. It's like the secrets in yesthattom's book.
