System Administrator Appreciation Day [Jul. 27th, 2007|04:20 pm]

    July 27th, 2007 (Last Friday Of July)
    8th Annual System Administrator Appreciation Day


    If you can read this, thank your sysadmin.

    A sysadmin unpacked the server for this website from its box, installed an operating system, patched it for security, made sure the power and air conditioning was working in the server room, monitored it for stability, set up the software, and kept backups in case anything went wrong. All to serve this webpage.

    A sysadmin installed the routers, laid the cables, configured the networks, set up the firewalls, and watched and guided the traffic for each hop of the network that runs over copper, fiber optic glass, and even the air itself to bring the Internet to your computer. All to make sure the webpage found its way from the server to your computer.

Ah. So that would be me, then, amongst other people. Show your thanks in any way you can.

I showed my appreciation some years ago by writing sysadmin porn...

Well, I can come and help you clear more of the living room, if you like?

But not until I've recovered from this horrible bug.

(Richard claims the spam filter on our server cannot be improved. Is he correct?)
