Sys Admin Day

As Tom over in DC points out, System Administrators often toil in obscurity, unheralded, unrecognized and underappreciated. So six years ago, the last Friday in July was designated System Administrator Appreciation Day.

So today, raise a glass of whatever liquid you have handy to Metroblogging’s sysadmin and resident code poet, Jason DeFillippo, who regularly rocks it like the proverbial hurricaine. Thanks, Jason.

And don’t forget to take today to genuflect to all the sysadmins in your life: home, office and elsewhere. That includes the friends and relatives you have come over to your house to fix your computer. Today is the day to placate them with burnt offerings.
