Happy Sysadmin Day!

Today's the day to pat yourselves on the back

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

It’s the last Friday in July, so that can mean only one thing - happy SysAdmin Day!

Yep, today is the celebration of all you lovely lot who spend half your lives chilling your socks in air-conditioned server rooms across the globe.

System administrators may shy away from public life and occupy dark corners that are only occasionally lit up by the flicker of a computer game screen, but when it comes to ensuring that servers run smoothly, these boys and gals are superstars.

Today is the 11th annual SysAdmin Day that pays homage to slavish server warriors.

“Let's face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work. But seriously, we are asking for a nice token gift and some public acknowledgement. It's the least you could do,” reads the official site celebrating all things sys.

“Consider all the daunting tasks and long hours (weekends too.) Let's be honest, sometimes we don't know our System Administrators as well as they know us. Remember this is one day to recognise your System Administrator for their workplace contributions and to promote professional excellence. Thank them for all the things they do for you and your business.”

We at Vulture Central salute each and every last one of you. Now celebrate - eat a doughnut, read some restricted company documents and play some shoot-em-up. ®
