Adminspotting

Dedicated to all Sysadmins of the world:

“Choose no life. Choose no career. Choose no
family. Choose a fucking big computer, choose arrays the size
of washing machines, modem racks, CD ROM writers and electrical
coffee makers. Choose no sleep, high caffeine and mental
insurance. Choose no friends. Choose black jeans and matching
combat boots. Choose chairs for your office in a range of
fucking fabrics. Choose SMTP and wondering why the fuck you’re
logged on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting in that swivel chair
looking at mind-numbing, spirit-crushing web sites, stuffing
fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the
end of it all, pishing your last on some miserable newsgroup,
nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up
lusers Gates spawned to replace the computer-literate. Choose
your future. Choose sysadmining.” – Adminspotting

Tomorrow, July 30, 2004 is System Administrator Appreciation Day.
Be nice to those people who keep your computers, networks,
servers, databases, etc. etc. humming smoothly. Give ’em some
loving in the form of interesting toys, a
night out with Siti Nurhaliza,
etc. to make ’em happy on that day. You don’t want them to turn
into a Bastard Operator From Hell,
do ya? After all, they gotta put up with the usual stuff from
you for the other 364 days.
