    Friday, July 27th, 2007 - Sysadmin day

    http://www.sysadminday.com

    Should we promote it?

    Friday, July 27th, 2007, is the 8th annual System Administrator Appreciation Day. On this special international day, give your System Administrator something that shows that you truly appreciate their hard work and dedication.

    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.

    Consider all the daunting tasks and long hours (weekends too.) Let's be honest, sometimes we don't know our System Administrators as well as they know us. Remember this is one day to recognize your System Administrator for their workplace contributions and to promote professional excellence. Thank them for all the things they do for you and your business.

    I think it'd have greater effect if it wasn't during the summer hols but there isn't any harm in it

    But of course, we work hardest during the summer holidays, so even more reason to be rewarded... the fact that no-one is there to see the hard work is of little importance

    One of our ICT teachers bought us a box of choccy biscuits in today for Sysadmin day. I thanked her but pointed out that she's a month early... Maybe we'll get another one next month?

    Celebrate it with your fellow techies. Go down the pub for lunch and a couple of pints. A nice relaxed afternoon should follow re-imaging laptops and the like with a decent DVD on the projector and the school PA system hooked up for decent sound

    What a stupid time of year. Yet again all use education sys admins left out!

    Although most of you work the summer don't you? :-P

    Still... means there are no staff around to appreciate you!
