They call me sysadmin now ... always!
It's been quite some time now since I got appointed as the astt system administrator for my institute and have become known profusely since then. But hardly had I sensed that there could be an awkward side of the coin too. People seem to have forgotten that I'm still Nirnimesh and they address me as sysAdmin, root, and so on. I get the impression that they think that we sysAdmins keep looking for people to block their logins (the institute's policy says to block the logins of spammers). Every now and then I get mails/requests when someone is not able to work out something with his/her system or when suddenly the programs stop working due to some reason not remotely related to me and my job.
So, though it feels good to be called sysAdmin, come'on..enough is enough. Do I cease to be myself?
