How to be a system administrator and live up to 100 years

    Many times used all sorts of books from O'Reilly. Then suddenly prepare a Perl recipe, then in Bind urgently fix something. Or suddenly you need to talk on the "programmer's hair dryer" - regular expressions, therefore. The whole kitchen is in my
    favorite publishing house. But the life of the system administrator is not only reading books and documents. The system administrator is a living person. He is also not alien to the joys of human life. For a while, when you are young, it seems that neither Chinese noodles nor quick dinners in the workplace can turn you off the path of an IT Jedi. Pepsi, pies with kittens, fast foods, many attended this school of survival. Until one day you start looking between the lines in O'Reilly's books for a homemade pizza recipe.

    Our service is both dangerous and difficult

    The work of a system administrator to someone, especially to the bosses, may seem easy and irresponsible. Often, the sysadmin is remembered when something breaks. Let's say the client-bank does not work on the eve of the salary, or the server rebelled from the heat and the domain controller was covered.

    A sad admin appears out of nowhere, muttering something under his breath. “Who builds like that! Well, who is building this? ”

    Steadily transferring the cries of the chief accountant, director and other bosses, he brings to life the entire enterprise system. Then, after bouts of rage, the good uncles and aunts thank the bosses, shake hands and drink tea. But believe me, a spoonful of
    valerian would be much better.

    The system administrator during its work is affected by many unfavorable factors. A busy schedule of work, constant searches for the know-how of the computer world, congestion in information flows, the requirement to think outside the box
    (go there I don’t know where), possession of related sections of knowledge (accounting, paperwork), increased or paranoid attitude to security, adverse radiation from computer equipment, a small office room, often poorly ventilated, a floating work schedule, shifted lunches, processing and other factors.

    Admin health to you gentlemen

    Indeed, with such hard work, it’s “hard to be God”! So, if you are healthy, you have no excess weight and good eyesight - you are an ideal administrator. Congratulations!

    For the rest, you can give some useful recipes from “grandparents” in the system administration.

    Seek from your superiors that the health of the system administrator is directly proportional to the work of the enterprise. It’s good enough to get tired for a week, twitch from calls on Saturday, Sunday, so that on Monday, almost falling asleep, confusing the server, reboot the worker for 10 minutes at the very height of work. Didn't you have one? You are a happy person!

    The air in the room where the system administrator works must be air-conditioned. Otherwise, the brakes and freezes on your brain will exceed the brakes of the personal computer of a Luzerny employee with Windows XP, 128 MB of RAM and Kaspersky Anti-Virus installed. Always wonder what the cost of your mistake and downtime is.

    The room, the location of your workplace should be adequate to your ambitions. If you want to have healthy offspring, not live on the same energizers, require a separate workplace. This should not be a former pantry with leaking pipes or a place in the room with a secretary. In order to assemble a cluster of two incense computers on Linux, you need divine silence.

    The monitor should be very good, because only finished nerds can work constantly reading from a bad monitor.

    The system unit to choose the most silent, otherwise your nervous system will begin to malfunction very soon. This will instantly affect your ability to play WoW.

    All diseases are from nerves, so try to be more positive.

    Don't have a 1 C backup? Did the air conditioning die in the server room? Smile, relax. Read, call the secretary, and ask him about the recursive acronym, they say, you need to buy along with a stapler and a USB coffee maker. Mentally enter the image of your WoW hero, recharge with powerful energy against the mat, rebukes and cuts in the bonus. Remember your nervous system, this is actually the north bridge on the enterprise motherboard.

    Be in nature more often, let all static charges go to the ground. Computers are a good thing, but they will not replace a picnic in nature with barbecue, wine and girls.

    Learn to drink green tea instead of coffee. Someday the body will thank you very much.

    Stimulate your desire to play sports. Encourage yourself for this in every way. Finally, gaining courage, start going to the gym. Do not confuse with a sports bar.

    Exercise with iron restores your physical fitness like nothing else.

    Who dares to shout at you in the back, they say, the nerd went, after two years of physical training in the gym?

    Eat something for which then it will not be a shame. Hot, freshly prepared food is what you deserve.

    Let enikeyshiki absorb Chinese noodles mixed with dihydrogen monoxide and creepy spices. You should have the 1st, 2nd and 3rd, like az, beeches, lead. Asceticism is useful for the system administrator, but do not make this cult out - be simpler, eat tasty food. A thermos with hot borsch is better than a pie with a suspicious smell.

    The Japanese, as you know, at certain times of the day supply various stimulating flavors to the air. Where to us to them, but citrus smells are on sale today - use your health.

    Understand the main thing - you deserve a happy and healthy life!
