RIP SysAdmin Magazine

I got my last issue of SysAdmin Magazine last week, though I didn't open it until last night. I was shocked to discover that, according to the editor, this was to be their final issue. I've been a subscriber for the past few years, and have always enjoyed their practical, in-the-trenches approach to system administration topics. I particularly liked that they always did one or two issues on security each year. And now they're gone, just about 3 months after I renewed my subscription. I'll be sorry to see them go.

Are you sure? Their website doesn't give any indication of such.

I'm still pissed that the mailman delivers SA to the peninsula before he delivers it to the south side.

Unfortunately, the From the Editor column was quite clear. I also looked for confirmation on the website, and it's not there. Maybe they've stopped supporting that already?

Bummer. I enjoyed reading certain articles and I always liked the TOC on the front page. Perhaps I will look at "Login" magazine.

You can put me on the "Seriously Bummed" list. SA was one of those magazines that survived many admins "growing up" (progressing from newbie to professional).
