Do you know when your sysadmins are doing the job right? When you don't notice.
The only possible way for a sysadmin to get noticed is to screw up.
"The lifecycle blah-blah-blah for the infrastructure team," he said "Is simple. They rack the server and that's it. I mean, what else is there to do?"
Which was ha-ha funny at first. Then I realized he was _serious_. And most of his minions were nodding their heads in agreement.
The other day someone was complaining that the internet was slow (it was), turned out they were syncing dropbox, backblaze and icloud, saturating the network. I understand now why sysadmins lock down everything where they can :)
