Sysadmin appreciation day! (Now why didn't I think of that!)

I don't know if any of you guys are members of Isohunt.com but i was browsing it last night and came across this:

http://www.isohunt.com/squirrel_m5/index.php

I'm a Sysadmin and I hate it. The worst career move ever. IT guys are totally stressed out due to stuff going down and people wanting it up NOW and not understanding that we can't fix things in 2 seconds or anticipate something going down. It's low pay, high stress and general underappreciation since when things stay up no one cares until there is a problem.

I was looking for an M5 for almost 2 years and it got to the point where i thought i would never get it due to financial issues but fortunitly i was able to find a 2002 Carbon Black M5 last Sept and it's been the best thing i've ever done so i feel for someone in his position and i decided to flip the guy $10.

My question is... why didn't i think of that!

PS. I don't know the guy or have any interest in this, just wanted to help someone out who's worked hard for other people and wants to experience the thrill of the M5 that most of us probably take for granted now.
