A Song for #SysAdminDay: ‘The Day The Routers Died…’ | via #RIPENCC Circa 2007

10 years ago during the then-forthcoming global transition from IPv4 to IPv6, the RIPE 55 conference featured this conference closing song and performance by Gary Feldman that is a nod to SysAdmins everywhere – it’s an epic, near-6-minute re-write of the classic Don McLean homage tune “American Pie.” Check out those video wipe animations – whew!

“Be persuaded to upgrade it or your network will die” Full lyrics can be found in the description of the YouTube video.
