Yesterday was SysAdmin day, one 24 hour time span to celebrate the people that make sure your company runs smoothly.I was so busy yesterday that I forgot to post yesterday.
SysAdmins however, do not only work for companies; if you are at home they work for you too, your internet and other things you use daily and probably take for granted are up and running because of SysAdmins.
Think about things without SysAdmins, when your internet goes down at home or your computer or printer is sick at work who do you go to for help? SysAdmins mostly go unnoticed because they usually work from behind the scenes and do not really hog the spotlight.
SysAdmin day was created to recognize the hard working men and women behind the scenes. So the next time you see your SysAdmins, give them at least a thank you for your hard work; if you feel generous, here are a few things they would appreciate as a gift:
- Gift certificates to ThinkGeek
- A Leatherman multi-tool
- Movie Tickets
- A new techie coffee mug or coffee, we love our coffee. Gevalia has some nice things.
- A gift from Craft Beer Hound
- Bondic Plastic Welder
