System administrators. IT pros. The IT guy (or IT gal). Techies. They go by a lot of names, but they all pretty much share a common goal: be the fantastic fixers of all things tech. After all, if weren’t for sysadmins, making copies would require a trusty pen, a steady hand, and a ton of patience.
SysAdmins are always on call, whether it’s updating your company’s antivirus software, replacing that toner waste cartridge or repairing a corrupt SQL database.
So if you’re able to read all of this, thank your SysAdmin — and know he or she is only one in a tech army bringing you the email from your aunt on the West Coast, the instant message from your son at college, the free phone call from the friend in Australia, and this very webpage.
