SysAdmin Day Survival Pack: Call for entries!

UPDATE 7/26/2010 1:30p ET: The list of 10 finalists is now posted and ready for voting!

Every day, rain or shine, and often remotely in the wee hours, SysAdmins get to work protecting your inbox, routing the internets, shoring up your network, and monitoring your web history.* All this while fighting back lusers who still--still--haven't learned to restart before picking up the phone. (Maybe they're from the past?)

So to celebrate SysAdmin Day on July 30th, we want to give one extraordinary SysAdmin exactly what he or she needs: PROTECTION.

SysAdmin Day Survival Pack prizes:

Help us find the SysKing or SysQueen of 2010 and winner of those glorious shiny objects above by entering your mini-essay (1,000 characters or less) by midnight on July 25, 2010. (Please note selfishly: If your nominee wins, you'll snag a $100 gift certificate, too.)

On July 26 we'll post our favorite 10 nominees here on our blog and open up the field to voting through July 29th. The winner will be announced on July 30th. More information and legalese on the process (including how you have to be in the US or Canada [except Quebec] to win) is on the official contest page, but you can enter your favorite SysAdmin below.

Good luck to our entrants, and may all lusers try turning it off and on again before bugging SysAdmins on July 30th!

*Probably not in an evil way, like to extort you, but they could, you know. Not that this is a threat or anything. Certainly not.
