generating the levels of straight-up vitriol that y'all do. I don't think that's true any more. Over the past several months there have been fewer "you guys are mean" complaints on meta and in comments. I think we have been closing crappy posts w/out engaging, and if SE has any suggestions on what else to do, I'm sure we'd all like to hear them...

I realize that part of your issue is not wanting your system to reboot when you're busy, but still - your solution to the issue of reboots is to reboot 3 times as often?

comment How to measure a sysadmin's workload?
To be complete, I should point out the picture above comes from our internal wiki page on the importance of documenting everything you do. In other words, no one here questions the value of documentation, communications, relationship-building...
