What I like about being a Network Administrator

  1. No matter how good your network is running, for the creative there is always a way to reconfigure it, or a new tool to implement to make it work better.
  2. Shhhhh!!! Don't tell anyone because they pay me a lot of money to do this, but the secret sauce of being and IT professional is that most problems can be fixed by restarting the system.
  3. Machines are easier to understand than people.
  4. At the end of the day I know exactly what I have achieved. Many people I work with have job functions that don't have don't have measurable results. They know that they wrote a report or a press release, but it is hard to say what difference these deliverables made
