i have a bachelor's in math.  michigan tech didn't have 'official'
minors at the time, but if it did, mine would have been in compsci.
i knew what unix was, but i was just a basic user at the time.

i got my first 'real' job after college, unix tech support at kmart
world headquarters, in large part because i had a degree.  neither that
job, nor any job i've had since has had anything to do with my
bachelor's.  however, without the experience i got at the first job, i
doubt that i would have gotten my second, which was my real break.
