My job as a Systems Administrator for the University of Georgia Libraries is always interesting ... and challenging! Monitoring, managing, troubleshooting, and maintaining the Libraries' network and all of the various aspects of the LAN, including servers and desktops; certainly keeps me and serveral other support specialists quite busy and there is plenty of work for everyone. Without the always capable talents of fellow Network Operations & Computer Support team members, we could not begin to offer the quality of service and support that is vital to the Libraries' day to day operations.
 
I am the lead for the administration, operation, and monitoring of over a dozen Windows servers. NOCS supports and maintains over 400 staff workstations, some 200 public workstations and more than 30 networked printers. On a typical day a significant amount of our work time is spent just keeping the production systems maintained and functioning properly.
 
In the Summer and early Fall of 2006 Debbie and I backpacked the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail ... from Springer Mountain to Bly Gap in North Carolina and on to Wayah Gap. In Summer 2007 we continued our adventure and walked from Wayah Gap to Lake Fontana on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Debbie took most of the pictures in these slide shows.
