I'm compiling a collection of stories from the systems administrator
trenches.  They can be short or long, funny or about a particularly
challenging problem or period, or even something that appeared very
technically challenging and ended up being something very simple.  Stories
which are more political would be ok so long as they do not have an agenda
or can be interpreted as a public attack.

I can't promise money but I can promise 15 minutes of fame.  The stories
will be accumulated over the next few months and go into a book about real
world experiences of Systems Administrators and Systems Engineers.  Some of
the material may be used in our training classes, as well.  All stories will
be duly credited and I'll even buy a beer (or other non-alcoholic beverage)
for anyone I ever meet in person.  

Stories may be edited for grammar or clarity.

This book is still in the proposal stage so there is no firm target date,
yet.  If for some reason the book is not published (just like tech projects,
books are sometimes cancelled at the last minute) they will go up on our
