    you called him a Chatnazi?

    I work as a sysadmin for a software development company and I couldnīt believe my ears this morning when ma boss called me in the office. Nothing serious, now I know I am not the worldīs greatest when it comes to userfriendlyness but it seems that my co-workers dubbed me the name ITNazi in the last meeting and ever since they donīt call me by my name anymore but the horrible nick.
    Are there any more sysadmins who experience the same sorta thing?

    I'm jealous. My comapny still calls me by my name. Then again, maybe they are just afraid to give me a nick.

    Focmaester, unfortunately into every life a few idiots must fall. They are obviously envious of your superior intellect and computer knowledge...Now chin up, chest out and repeat after me...I will not let the boneheads get me down, I will not let the boneheads get me down.

    Maybe if they had to clean up some of their own messes occasionally they would see your job in a whole new light!

    Have a better day!

    Man, you get called nice names!! I'd take ITNazi over what the software guys here call me. Or the damned engineers. You've got it easy my man, very easy.

    Talking ITNazi?

    I get that too, and technically, the computers aren't even my problem. It's finally gotten to the point that I walk in the door to a chorus of, "Heeeeeeeeeeeeelp!"

    Do what I do.

    Ask if it's on fire.

    If no, then hang up your coat, get your coffee, etc. -Then- explain to the frantic user that the "arrowthingies" in Outlook only appear if you have enough messages to need to use the scrollbar.

    If yes, then yer in luck, it's not your job. Call the fire department.

    At my place, we are all frequently referred to as "Damn M.I.S."


    It's funny though, no one ever thanks us when we make it work...

    And they never will, because, isn't it supposed to work ALL the time? hehehehe

    My fav thing of the day is when some big system is down and your boss comes in the data center yelling "We're losing $100,000 an hour because of this!!!"

    Then, I just have to ask "If I get it back up in 10 minutes do I get a cut of the cost savings?"
    hehehe
