SysAdmin Day 2013–Friday July 26

Friday is System Administrators Day, and this post is just a gentle reminder that gifts, food,  appreciation, and, dare I say it, even tokens of affection are appreciated by those of us who toil in the hot and noisy server rooms, dusty equipment closets, and under your desk kneehole as we work to keep the networks secure and the computers humming.

There are some splendid gift ideas on the SysAdmin Day website.  I am not sure that Hallmark has cards, but you could look.  So give your favorite geek a hug, and enjoy the look of terror mixed with confusion on his or her face.  Then blurt out “Happy System Administrator Day!”
