There are just over three days left until the big day here in California, and we’re really excited to announce the fourth and final challenge.

We know sysadmins work magic. You know sysadmins work magic. Now it’s time to tell the rest of the world.

This week’s challenge: tell us the story of a time when you were the hero. A time when you saved an invaluable file. A network. A company. A life. Send your story to sysadminday at opendns dot com. Just like the previous three weeks, the best story wins a $50 gift card from American Express.

With this challenge we’re looking to be inspired — examples of accomplishing what is thought to be impossible. And we want the whole story, including the situation leading up to the heroic act and the response you got afterward.

For those of you who are uncomfortable patting yourself on the back, don’t worry about it. We’ll do it for you. 🙂

Good luck sysadmins!

Update: Submissions are due Friday at 9 a.m. PST.
