    I wish I was a sysadmin Ramit or even knew what that meant 🙂 not because I like working for other people, because I don’t, but because it seems like it would be uber fun to work with you and your freaking brilliant when it comes to business. I’m sure some of that rubs off on those who are around you.

    Good Luck!
