Does it exist? I think it does.

Oh, BOFH. *happy sigh* BOFH was my role model when I became a sysadmin all those years ago.

I'm not joking.

Well, a little bit. But only a little.

Just curious, would this scenario qualify? Saturday night, a pianist and vocalist are contracted to entertain a large party in the ball room. Meanwhile I'm playing my regular gig in the dining room. Sunday, I return to play brunch in the ball room. I sit down and begin when, not as much as 16 bars are played, and I nearly freeze in my tracks. My piano had been tuned in the worst possible way - electronically.

I say this because the difference between a piano tuned by ear and one tuned electronically would go unnoticed by most pianists and yet to me this difference is stunningly stark. This aside, for any piano players out there - tune to A441 and the piano will light up - will 'sing'.

If this is any sort of an example the working of the Admin gene, I can't say, but one thing seems, those who express it know their equipment intimately.

I think it's a good example.
