System Administrators encounter all sorts of strange situations through their daily operations. We know it!

The last two volumes, SysAdmin Horror Stories Vol 1 and SysAdmin Horror Stories Vol 2, highlighted a few of them. That proved so successful that we decided to produce a third and final volume. We've managed to gather some more real-life stories to share with you, that are both funny and horrific.

Here's a fresh set of tricky technical situations, terrible mishaps, and messy misadventures direct from the trenches. We hope you'll enjoy every single story!
