Give your sysadmin a hug
By clive on Jul 31, 2009
The multitude of skills I needed to develop as a Systems Administrator, even though 15 years ago, are still essential to the job I do today.
When I visit a customer in a crisis, the Systems Administrator is typically the calmest, have the best grasp of the underlying problem and best placed to bring the various parties involved together.
So go on, hug your systems administrator. A systems administrator is for life not just for the 31st of July.
