2. Why did the system administrator cross the road? To get coffee. Why else would one be outside? – Author Unknown

3. The most likely way for the world to be destroyed, most experts agree, is by accident. That’s where we come in; we’re computer professionals. We cause accidents. – Nathaniel Borenstein

4. There are three kinds of death in this world. There’s heart death, there’s brain death, and there’s being off the network. – Guy Almes

5. As a network administrator, I can take down the network with one keystroke. It’s just like being a doctor but without getting gooky stuff on my paws. – Scott Adams (Dogbert)
