I mostly made the change of circumstances happen.  My first "proper" IT
job was with a law firm who got went from a 64k ISDN line (for 500 seats)
to a whole 0.5Mb leased line.  A caching proxy and NATing firewall was
needed, so I started learning out Linux and Squid.

Since then I have largely progressed self-taught.  I got into the habit of
trying to solve problems that interested me but then writing HOWTOs to
share that knowledge with other people.
