Like Sauron, SysAdmins see all.
They have access to your work email. They know what sites you visit when you should be working on that Q3 proposal. They can tell when you last logged in, what you did, and for how long. They keep the phones running, the site online, and the internet in a small black box on their desks.
It's up to them whether they use those powers for good or evil. You don't want to leave that to chance.
Save yourself and nominate your favorite SysAdmin for The One SysAdmin Day Contest to Rule Them All by 11:59pm ET on July 25, 2012!
It's like throwing the One Ring into the fires of Mount Doom.
If your entry is randomly chosen, you will win a $250 ThinkGeek gift certificate, and your SysAdmin will win:
- A Sauron Premium Format Figure by Sideshow Collectibles, worth a lifetime of service to the Dark Lord. Highly detailed and very menacing, Sauron will guard your SysAdmin's desk. (Please note that this a sneak peek of Sauron and he won't ship until Spring 2013!)
- A $1,000 ThinkGeek Shopping Spree to stock up on IT survival items.
After you enter, you'll have the option to share a story about your SysAdmin--their tireless work maintaining network latency into the wee hours of the night, or that time they patiently explained to a coworker how to doubleclick--and we'll share the best stories on our blog as the contest continues. The contest closes at 11:59pm ET on July 25, 2012, and we'll notify our winner in time for SysAdmin Day on Friday, July 27.
This contest is now closed! Thanks for your entries and stories! We'll notify the winner by 7/31/12.
Of course, if you don't enter, you can always try turning it off and on again. Good luck with that.
Looking for legalese? Even orcs need contest rules.
