Agreed. Basic admin skills are invaluable, even if you "just" program.
My sister and her husband used to have an almond ranch. On his truck was a
bumper sticker "If you eat, you are involved in agriculture".

Aw come on Larry, at least you can spell RPG without prompting. Used to be
pretty good at it too.
If your in a small shop, and a PTF needs to be applied for your application,
who's going to do it? True many will call Larry, Pete, myself or several
others on this list but many times you don't have the time nor is is smart
when all you need is just that one or two PTFs. I content that to be a
great programmer, you need a well rounded knowledge of the system. Applying
PTF is one of those things.
