07272007sys2.jpgSysadmin Day / System Administrator Appreciation Day

A sysadmin is a professional, who plans, worries, hacks, fixes, pushes, advocates, protects and creates good computer networks, to get you your data, to help you do work — to bring the potential of computing ever closer to reality.*

Let’s face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work. But seriously, we are asking for a nice token gift and some public acknowledgement. It’s the least you could do*.

In fact the guys over at Gizmodo couldn’t have said it any better…

Bang one of these nerdy desk ornaments on the head and it whines “I’m thinking right now.” Bang a real geek on the head, though, and they’ll probably be able to tell you the pressure per square inch exerted by the palm of your hand. I can’t decide which one would give me more fun.*

So true, so true!
