    Top ten ways...

    Hello AO:

    I'm looking to create a "Top Ten ways to tell if your Systems Administrator is Bored" List. Something that would be funny to techies as well as non techies. You know people like the sysadmin' boss.

    Anyway, the only thing I can come up with is

    ...If he answers the help desk phone.
    ...All the digital clocks in the office are flashing "Is it time to go yet?"

    The BOFH series are good, but non techies would have a hard time finding the humor. Maybe tell me what you do when you're bored and want to amuse yourself with network resources.

    Thanks,

    Dino

    "When he starts to play MineSweeper!"

    "When he starts to gossip!!"

    Or

    "When he starts to play with his mobile phone!"

    Or

    "When you remember what he looks like?"

    Most of the SysAdmin's I've worked with are usually so busy that u rarely see him. One thing I've noticed at my job, when he gets bored, he walks around the office....repeatedly.

    When he starts throwing darts at his door.

    When he plays basketball on one monitor and plays mp3's on the other.

    When he stands up, walks into my office, and stares straight up at the ceiling trying to think up something for me to do.
