OMG: "Hostile" Takeover of www.sun.de

A few hours ago, www.sun.de has been "taken over" by Systemhelden.com.

"Systemheld" in german translates to "system hero" and that's what this community portal is all about. Visitors of the German Sun home page are now being asked to "honor their sysadmin", because "without his unreached knowledge, his daily commitment to his job, his angel-like patience and a mind-expanding amount of coffee consumption, things would go dark pretty soon." (s/his/her/g where appropriate).

Having been a system administrator at my university's computer center in the mid nineties, I know what this means. I administered our university' proxy server in the beginning of the dot-com boom, and I've had my share of typical sysadmin-vs-luser stories :).

Speaking of which, check out the new series of comics that were produced for systemhelden.com. Even if you don't speak german, you'll understand what they mean...

Tomorrow we'll be recording a new episode of the HELDENFunk podcast and we have a couple of cool things lined up, so stay tuned.

Hallo Constantin,

erstmal noch einen herzlichen Dank auch an dich für die letzten 3 Tage, war wirklich Klasse in Frankfurt!
Leider habe ich die "feindliche Übernahme" nicht mitbekommen, Internet war eine Mangelware auf den TechDays :(
Schöne Grüße
