Yes, indeed, but I prefer some things related to fundamental choices 
still stay in my control, and if they are automated, they are automated 
by me. When I was asked if I could take second department as my 
responsibility, I had everything automated so, that I answered quite 
honestly: "sure, where there are 100 machines, can easily be 200".

Indeed sysadmins are lazy. I call it "lazy enough to do thing well 
enough, so you will not have to redo them in a future".
