Hug a SysAdmin on July 29th

Being a Systems Administrator can be thankless work. They’re the ones who keep your data flowing, networks pinging and computers booting round the clock, and the cruel hallmark of a great Sysadmin is this:

If they’re doing a good job, you don’t even know they’re doing it.

So we have SysAdmin Appreciation Day – an attempt to recognize the unsung heros of Information Technology. And while a single day of recognition and appreciation doesn’t really undo the countless hours of frustration that can come along with the job, it sure doesn’t hurt either.

This year ThinkGeek has partnered with The Marysue and Geekosystem to sweeten the deal with a SysAdmin Pageant! Nominate your favorite SysAdmin and they could be crowned SysKing or SysQueen of 2011. Winners take home a whole array of prizes, including a 16GB iPad, a fancy red swingline stapler, and an RTFM mug.

If you’d just like to show your Sysadmin love the old fashioned way, I suggest the showering your I.T. department with the following on Friday:

  • Delicious food
  • High fives / Mad Props
  • Cold hard cash
  • Bottles of fermented grain
  • Cake and other tasty treats

What do you have planned for your SysAdmins for this Friday?

So Today is Valentines Day

Many of us no matter the occasion always manage to wait until the very last minute to shop for our loved ones. Today is no different.  So hurry up and go pick something up for the special person in your life – and don’t forget the chocolate!  If you stumble across any cool/geeky/romantic sites up today full of marriage proposals or something else close to that nature, please share!

Happy Valentines Day to All!
