System Administrator Appreciation Day

It’s that time of the year again. The last Friday of July is the System Administrator Appreciation Day. You have plenty of time to plan them a party, or buy them gifts before the day arrives. But please, no mugs!

You can see some suggestions for gifts here.

Go ahead, consider it. You can seriously make them happy and in turn they can make you happy all year round. They can do all sort of nasty things, although they usually don’t do it. They can read your emails and tell the whole world about it. They can also make your life easier if they like you!

I am currently not a System Administrator for an office infrastructure, but for an integration system. So unless the collection of servers and systems can throw me a party or buy me gifts, looks like nothing for me this year 🙂
