Solarwinds invites you to help celebrate SysAdmin Day! Prizes abound!

SysAdmin Appreciation Day is right around the corner, and Solarwinds want to show you how much they appreciate administrators everywhere! Share your best true story about your life as a SysAdmin for a chance to win an iPad, a  ThinkGeek gift card, or an original piece of art based on your tale. Entrants will share their story in the SysAdmin Day Contest  space on thwack. Entries can be interesting, shocking, horrible, funny, dumb, epic, etc. Like any good story, the most winning stories will capture and keep our attention! Put some thought into what you think your best story is, as those that post more than one story will be disqualified from winning. We’ve all heard tales about hardware stored in rooms where the temperature was up to 140 degrees, or servers buried behind walls, stacked under desks, teetering on bookshelves, or lost to rain because someone left a window open in the basement. We want to hear the strangest request you’ve ever gotten, the dumbest question a user ever asked – those days you wanted to place your palm directly on your forehead — or with more force on someone else’s! Every entry will be evaluated both by members of the thwack community — by voting submissions up or down — and by a panel of judges. The entrant with the highest ranked story by the judges will win an Apple gift card equal to the cost of an iPad AND an original piece of art to represent their tale. Four additional winners will be chosen by the thwack community, and will each win a $50 gift card to ThinkGeek. The judging panel includes: Wesle
