Frustrated Network Administrators Wanted – Frustrated Network Administrators Wanted

Stressed out network administrators now have a place where to vent, and win prizes!

GFI Software has just released a fun and interactive site targeted towards network administrators and anyone who understands the problems caused by PST files, crashing servers, storage limitation problems, unreliability issues and networking nightmares! Ultimately, PST files are likely to cause you grief in one way or another. PST Panic, found at is the name of the game where you get to rate other administrators based on the reaction caused by having to deal with PST files.

The rating meter ranges from 1 (least frustrated) to 10 (most frustrated) and each photo rated brings up the next one. Apart from participating in the rating battle, you are also encouraged to upload your own I-hate-PST-files-and-this-is-my-photo-to-prove-it picture. Only by registering with the site and uploading your photo will you be in with the chance to win some great prizes.

What’s on offer? Well, for the most frustrated admin (because s/he must really deserve it) GFI is giving away a $250 Amazon gift voucher, whilst those who come in at 2nd and 3rd place will receive a $150 and $100 Amazon gift voucher respectively.

But it’s not only the top three frustrated users who stand in with a chance to win! The first 50 people who submit their photos will each be rewarded with a $50 Amazon gift voucher, plus five randomly selected administrators will also get their very own free copy of GFI MailArchiver thus ending their PST Panic moments. With so many chances to get your hands on some great prizes how can you not submit your photo?! The closing date for the competition is 31st October 2008 but photos will continue to be accepted even after this date for the sake of stress relief and to provide some humorous moments.
