Today is SysAdmin Day

Happy and SAAD

Site of the Day Today's SOTD is nothing if not topical. For it's the last Friday in July and that means Sysadminday.com,host of the second annual Systems Administrator Appreciation Day.

Yes, it's a Happy SAAD day, the one day in the year when it's OK to be nice to your techies. Bribe them with gifts, pretend you understand the jokes in the Bastard Operator From Hell. A few pleasantries today will carry you a long, long way. All the way into August.

So Simon, Aaron, Perlmeisters, database gurus, server config kings and Reg techies, we love you guys, OK. ®
