No, LPI isn't trying to become the next Linux ezine, but we do want your Linux sysadmin stories, detailing specific incidents, how you solved them, what you should have done, how proud you are of something you pulled off, etc.

We would like to know about specific incidents you have had while doing your job as a Linux system administrator. If it was a problem incident, we would like to know what happened, in what type of environment, what you tried to do to fix it, what fixed it, what you learned from the incident, and what you'd have done differently if you had it all to do over again.

If you had a crisis situation where you saved the day with your miraculous sysadmin skills, we want to know what happened, what you did, and what you learned from that too!

When sending in your stories, please include this information at the top of your story, and submit to stories@lpi.org:

      Level of Sysadmin (Jr Admin, Sr Admin, Manager, etc)
      Topic of incident (sendmail, DNS, network, etc)    

The purpose of this project is to better document the day to day life of a Linux sysadmin. These incidents will be used to help establish true environment documentation for Linux certification development.

We look forward to hearing your story!
