So, it is here. We've arrived. There were some bumps in the road, there always are...
Happy SysAdmin Day 2013, my brothers and sisters.
Take a moment, get up from your desk, escape the cube, and walk out the front door. Then, turn around and look at the building you just left and realize, the business it houses needs you. Without you, it is just a large brick/cement behemoth with random wires and electrical pulses shooting through it. Without you, the heartbeat goes erratic and soon ... well, that isn't good.
You keep the rhythm and the lifeblood flowing. You are the one that lays down the steady backbeat and, while you might find occasion to riff and show your ability to walk a bass line or fill a momentary silence with pure awesome, you are the constant and the necessary beat everyone returns to. We thank you.
Our winners will be announced today for the SysAdmin Contest, please head over and check out the handiwork of your colleagues in the field. Winners will be announce on the page at noon central time. The meme battle has been a blast. Thank you all for your participation.
And, we thought you might enjoy this tongue in cheek look at the lifestyle... Apologies if your policies don't allow YouTube. If that's the case, here's a link for later enjoyment? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU92ryHp_Fg
