Systems Administrator Creed

This is my server.  There are many like it, but this one is mine.  My server is my best friend.  It is my life. I must master it as I master my life.  My server, without me is useless. Without my server, I am useless.  I must configure my server true.  I will...

 

My server and myself know that what counts in this war is not the packets we drop, the noise of our fans, nor the power we consume. We know that it is the data that counts. We will backup...

 

My server is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its I/O and its slots. I will keep my server clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...

 

Before God I swear this creed:  My server and myself are defenders of the command prompt, we are the masters of our enemy.  We are the saviors of my life.  So be it, until every server is patched and there is no enemy, but uptime.
