This is very true and could be in the back of his mind.
And even with him being the only noted one in his place that uses Linux, he may already have the job security track secured, at the least.

I just worry about the scope creep of this. First its installations, then management, teaching, troubleshooting, on call at odd hours of the night.
It hasnt even been noted to what his main role is, but if he does not work in IT, does he want to end up there? Or does he think this could springboard himself into upper management?

But see, I'm so removed from DIII that I didnt even know that there was a patch issued. And thats probably for the best, because im too busy to put the time into Diablo. Now if they didnt fumble the game play between 2 and 3, I might have been more compelled to check out the update, but meh

I do remember some bs about not allowing an d helicopters in the vicinity because of health reasons and very little coverage.

It is a shame that some things are swept under the rug when they should be magnified appropriately. But when people want to silence an issue, there is ALWAYS a price it can be paid to be achieved . . . .

OP is saying that you cant learn at an older age, hes questioning how someone in the technology field has not done any kind of programming.

And I have to agree. Being 30 years old (im 30 as well) and never even having the curiosity to program anything like even a webpage says you kind of fell into that position, accepted it as a 9-5 and is literally by definition a mouse clicker.

But like you cited, starting at 30+ isnt a death knoll. Yea, it sucks that your competition are all fresh out college and on the cutting edge, but thats a risk he's willing to take. Best of luck man.
