eyepopslikeamosquito++, can't upvote that as often as I want.

Programmers need a Subversion repository. Getting a Subversion repository means you need a network, and a server, which has to be bought, installed, backed up, and provisioned with uninterruptible power, and that server generates a lot of heat, which means it ... and if your programmers even spend one minute thinking about this thatís one minute too many. To the software developers on your team, this all needs to be abstracted away as typing svn commit on the command line. Thatís why you have management.

Funnily, we are just building a nice little server room, based on my requirements (listed while emulating a sysadmin). One big project is done, other projects are still waiting to be started, so we have some time to polish our machines and our infrastructure. I know that all of my ten thumbs point to the right, but they are sufficient to hold parts of a drywall while a skilled worker gets rid of other parts of the drywall to make room for the server rack. So currently, I'm a developer emulating a sysadmin emulating a craftman's helper. That's ok for a day or so, and avoids reloading slashdot or perlmonks every five seconds. ;-)
