Jack of All Trades…

… is actually Master of most.  Unfortunately.  I am a systems administrator.  Let’s look at what I’ve done today…

– Discussed the pending breakdown of compute environments in another organization, trying to figure out how to mitigate said breakdown

– Buttered up a couple of sales people, playing the make-nice-nice game

– Replaced the staple pack in the copier

– Tracked down a missing shipment – well, started trying to, anyway

– Planned out a few projects on the whiteboard, but haven’t gotten clearance to initiate them yet

– Sent miscellaneous emails

Notice, nowhere in here do you see anything that deals directly with hands-on-keyboard sysadmin things.  What I wouldn’t give to be allowed to be the sysadmin I was hired to be.
