  • "Everything we do as SysAdmins is based off the idea that we need to be able to make sure that everyone else is able to do their jobs to the best of our ability. Our measure of success is everyone else's ability to function to the best of their ability. I think that that's pretty amazing."

  • "It's the challenge and satisfaction you receive from keeping your environment up, running, and healthy. The best systems admin is the one you never see. Anyone that knows the business, should know what I mean. I also like the opportunity to learn new things and integrate where necessary like using GLADE, Python and eclipse to develop a GUI for an application that was command line only. Small app, but I had a blast learning. It was a front end for the Dev team at OTS and they loved it."
