Today is SysAdmin Day, otherwise known System Administrator Appreciation Day. This "holiday" was first celebrated in 2000 and takes place annually on the last Friday in July. The goal, according to the SysAdmin Day website, it to give the guys and gals who maintain your computer network some love… and perhaps some nifty gifties!
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.
If you are looking for something nerd-tastic for the person who helps keep your data flowing, there is a slew of gift suggestions listed at ThinkGeek.com.
Otherwise, you can always go with the old standbys of junk food and comic books. See the System Administrator Appreciation Song video after the jump.
