I've set up a cron job to exectue "rm *" on all the directories on the server, after I'm safely on a plane to Rio.

I'm implementing a new password policy for my end users.

Minimum password length is 128 characters.
Must use a combination of letters, numbers, special characters, cyrillic, uppercase, lowercase, no repeating characters.
Expires every 24 hours.

You know.. for increased security.

This sysadmin is sending out juicy invoices for his time and then going golfing.  Because I don't expect a customer to give a good goddamn about me or my problems.

Superjew: By blocking Port 80.


Block UDP on 53, then put a couple of domains into the hosts file and when they complain they can't access the internet use those domains to "test" and pretend there isn't a problem and they're just nuts.

I'm wading through the Augean Stables of never-to-be-sufficiently-damned paperwork, writing reports, approving timecards, attending meetings, and trying to find five minutes to do some, you know, actual *SysAdmin* work.

/actually managed to load tapes for the weekend, build a new virtual DB server, transfer backup images, and build TFS 2010, so it's a good day (so far...)

Another fun one is to take a screenshot of their desktop, and then set that as their background image and remove a couple of their favorite icons from the desktop.  Drives people nuts.

Since I am no longer an IT drone I celebrated by executing "del *.* c:\windows\system32\"

We did that to our boss several years ago. Took him several minutes to figure it out. Next we replaced his Windows desktop with Microsoft Bob.
