sysadmin of the year

The first Syadmin of the Year awards have just been announced. While half the stuff said is likely embellished and it is just a little pat-on-the-back kind of site, I just thought it was interesting to see what these guys did that made their peers and co-workers nominate them.
I also would like to note that not one of them (with the Air Force exception) is wearing a tie to make them work better. Nor do any of them work for recognizable large-type corporations. These guys just plain “get things done” as opposed to running the gamut of business politics. And I would be willing to bet that every single one of these guys actually truly loves their job and company. Happiness == productive == successful.
