Who, me, stress? Nah….. sysadmins never have any stress, right?
Well, just in case you do – my feelings are that laughter is the best medicine – and I mean laugh out loud funny. So what do you do?
There are a lot of ways to tickle the funny bone, and they’re personal as well. Here are several that I use:
- Subscribe to RSS feeds like Sharky’s Column and The Daily WTF.
- Favorite comics (for me, that means: Liberty Meadows, Calvin and Hobbes, and Get Fuzzy)
- Personal copies of laugh out loud funny comics
- Funny movies
If you can indulge in some of these away from the office, it is much better. Fresh air is good, too – as is doing something totally unrelated to work (even if it is other work).
Burn-out is a real danger to system administrators; so get away from the tension and away from the office!

Is Frank Cho still doing Liberty Meadows? I thought that LM was on hiatus while Cho does work for Marvel.
Frank Cho, as I understand it, is no longer doing Liberty Meadows for the established syndicates, but rather is doing some for independent comics releases.
From looking at his web site, it looks like “Jungle Girl” and “The Mighty Avengers” are taking up his time these days, along with the occasional statue of (of course!) Liberty Meadows characters.
