I read some of the SOPs on the wiki, joined a few IRC channels, and instantly knew that I wanted to be a part of the team. Almost a year later, I am now on the core sysadmin team for the project, and enjoy spending time fixing things and making the Infrastructure, and thus, the Project, be the best it can be. :)
