What are you doing playing in the server room! You are software, not hardware!

I beg to differ....Systems administrators do the following:

Build and maintain servers
Build and maintain the server operating systems
Build and maintain the Email System (MS Exchange in our case)
Build any other type of server requested by the business
Maintain any additional software needed by the company
Audit Application/Network Security for the company

But most importantly:
Drink Coffee
Surf Arfcom
Smoke Cigarettes
Eat lunch
Drink Mountain Dew

oh yea, and we're SUPPOSED to know the answer to anything the helpdesk or desktop support doesn't know.

Google is my friend.

You left out all of the following:

Explain that you don't do phones
Change toner cartridges for the directors admin 'cause she doesn't want to get her hands "yucky"
Explain to users, "you have to have the mouse plugged in for it to work".
Tell user at 0200: "Trust me, you need to go log in at another workstation. You really don't want me to come in to "fix" your monitor that's out of focus."
Explain that you don't do phones.
Explain to user: "yes, you really did erase all your files when you did that remove command. No, Unix doesn't ask nicely if you really want to do something. It assumes you know what your doing."
Explain to user why drop table cascade is not how to commit work in a database
Explain to angry junior admin that fuckyouasshole probably isn't the best password to give out as a default password to a user he hates. Nor is Imanasshole any better.
Explain to user that reply all really does reply to the whole company when the sender is "everyone@ourcompany.com"
Explain that what part of I don't do phones means I can program your phone.

At least I don't have to explain why sticking floppies on the filecabinet with a magnet is such a bad idea anymore. For the most part.

I'm going to clue everyone in on PCR's REAL job as a System Administrator.

His job is to sit in his cubicle be my bitch.

I will casually stroll into his area, ask him how's doing, and then casually sneak in a question such as "Do you think X Y and Z is possible?" to which he will reply "Sure, that shouldn't be a problem".

At this point, he has made a major tactical mistake... He is now my bitch. I will begin a regimen of relentless but polite nagging and pestering. I try to mix it up so that it isn't every 5 minutes. I like to keep him on his toes, so I will stagger it. It might be 5 minutes one time, then perhaps for 30 minutes, then a quick burst of Mega-Nagging™ for a solid 10 minutes, then I'll leave him alone for an hour. If I do it right, he winds up having to work late while I go home.

In the end, he's never let me down, and somehow we're still friends.

Want to know if you have a good SysAdmin? Ask them if they've ever crashed a server by "accident"?

Hint: Never do an rm -rf * in /etc as root on a unix server. Or so I'm told.
