SANS - Survey on application security programs

Today is Sysadmin Day - the annual celebration of all things sys.

Just as the website says "If you can read this, thank your sysadmin".

It is the day when we should all show a bit of appreciation for that oft-ignored or even maligned creature, the system administrator. So why not show yours some loving? You could have a whip-round and buy them a present, or at least thank them for all their hard work.

The yearly beanfeast, always held on the last Friday of July, has been running since 2001. For any actual sysadmins out there who want to help organise the next one there are groups in Catalonia, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Russia, Ukraine and Wales. ®
