How a Sys Admin Tracked Down a Criminal

At PaperCut, I work a lot with Sys Admins and we swap war stories about the “challenging” tasks and significant business decisions we undertake every day.

Mercy Ships

Back in 2001 we received an order from Mercy Ships. After an online search into “Mercy Ships” it was decided it would be a nice gesture to give them PaperCut as a donation. How thrilled we were at PaperCut to receive a letter this week by regular post.
