"I wish I were going to be at LISA! But unfortunately, it's just that if you add an event you're automatically put down as attending it *(and I neglected to take myself off). Doh! I'm still trying to think creatively about why my…"

SysAdmin Network – what’s it all about?

There is no shortage of sites offering technical advice and news to Sys Admins, so why a social network?



It is true, there are plenty of technical sites (eg. Microsoft TechNet, TechTarget sites like SearchStorage and SearchSecurity), but in contrast to the Linux community, Microsoft-centric sites tend… Continue

Elizabeth, first off thanks for the comment. I've gotten some good advice from other admins (a few are on here). I've got a plan, now it's just taking everything one more step at a time. Unfortunately, I'm at a brink where if I bag one more bag of groceries or make one more Baconator, I'll snap!

Second, and most of all, Thank you for creating a site like this. I've been wanting to be a SysAdmin for going on 4 years and I've been rather surprised at how few sites there are for such a techie job. At first it was just a couple Networking sections on various PC and IT forums. Between ServerFault, PlanetSysAdmin aggregator, and this awesome site you and Michael have made, it's awesome. Not just great for a SysAdmin-in-training like myself, but for those in the trenches and livin' the life.

Thank you for the site, and Thank you for the warm welcome.

(P.S. - I do have IT related photos, but my last 2 jobs have very modest IT needs.)

Elizabeth, it looks like you're RSVP'd to LISA in Baltimore! Are you really going to be there?
At 10:20am on October 17, 2009, Matt Simmons said…
Ah..

For next year, the Large Installation part of LISA is pretty much a misnomer. From what they tell me, large installations are represented, but so are medium and small. In fact, I'm attending a workshop called microLISA specifically for small infrastructures.

If you'd like, I can get you in touch with the right USENIX people who could probably get you the demographics for the event.

Let me know if you're interested!
