Please don’t miss this. We have only a few days to get ready to celebrate a very special day. It’s called SysAdmin Day! Observed since 1999, SysAdmin Day is that one day each year that some of the hardest working computer dweebs in the industry will stand a chance of being recognized for their long hours, carefully honed skills, intricate solutions to brain numbing problems, and for saving the day — again and again — for all those people they support.
If your system works well, your network is dependable, your files are backed up while you sleep, and problems often seem to get fixed before you even realize that they exist, chances are that someone is doing a LOT of work behind the scenes to make sure everything keeps running smoothly. And that person or group of people — your sysadmins — might just be hoping that, on their special day, you take time to notice.
