A shitty reddit for shitty sysadmins.
My boss wants me to change the colour of the Windows taskbar or taskwindow or taskWord or something, I have tried nothing and I am all out of ideas on how to do it, but since we pay for a lot of things it can not hurt to pay for one small program more.
So since it is only for my boss I think it should be always online and licenced per user per month as is the norm NowA-Days, my boss plays a lot of games and streams a lot from his desktop so it MUST be swanky / pretty / something that 100% of viewers MUST find aesthetically pleasing.
Our org has some crazy budget constraints, so we've had to get creative to get our 3-2-1 rule in place.
We've created 7x M365 Family subscription, filled them with dummy accounts on one of our spare domains, and linked them all as OneDrive shortcuts to the OneDrive of our Backup Admin 365 account.
With all the accounts set up and linked, our backup admin basically has a 35TB OneDrive for under $100/mo, which covers us quite well.
Curious to know what everyone else uses?
IF YIU DONT THINK THAF THEY ARE GOING TI REPLACE US WITH AI YOU ARE DUMB!!!!!!!!!! SHREAD THE DOCS! MAKE THEM DEPENDENT ON YOU TO SECURE YOUR JOB! ITS THE ONLY WAY!!!!!
/r/rShittySysadmin does not mean /r/ShittyContent
Hence as a display of "unlimited POWAH ™ " of becoming a mod I have instituted rule 4 - the posterity rule.
Being a ShittySysadmin its unlikely to be enforced as that requires actual "admin"ing and I am better at the "ShittySys" part.
An actual email.
I keep asking my boss for HDMI cable since I use alot of it for the job I do but he keeps looking at me oddly.
I swear it's my brain thinking cat 5e ok, HTML ok, HDMI that's right.
Tryna to hotswap some RAM my network engineer lead suggested to on our largest clients rack. Anything I should be privy to?
Edit: Cannot disrupt 500 day uptime or my family will get beheaded
Personally I've done the following:
Changed the login sound to "12 days of Christmas" (full length).
Created a rule in Exchange to append a randomised Christmas gif to every Email.
Added a modified desktop background of animated fairy lights and snow. Only 50% GPU usage!
Advent calendar is used for peoples passwords. Every day a user's password will be something Christmas related!
Any other ideas?
As a Sysadmin it's your DUTY to do both of the following things AS LOUDLY AND OBNOXIOUSLY AS POSSIBLE:
Complain about the lack of improvements and tweaks to systems from devs attempting to eliminate issues or provide additional functionality.
Complain about any improvements, citing that the changes are worse and that nothing should be changed and everything was fine as it was thank you very much.
