Lyle was one of the first winners of the Second Mile award. He was nominated for the new award when he and his colleagues gave up most of their weekend to restore phone service to students when it was disrupted by an accident.

Lyle’s work is one of the biggest reasons OC’s network has such extraordinary uptime - far better than most college networks. One a 100% laptop, 100% wireless campus, the network is vital. But no one knows how important his work is because the network is always up.

The work of Lyle and his colleagues is so good that he is almost invisible. The network is ever-present, always up, and always taken for granted. For this extraordinary stability, we can thank Lyle and his colleagues.
