    What is the proper way to celebrate?  Buy them wrist supports?

    As a former SysAdmin I recommend actually getting know your SysAdmin and thanking them personally.  A beer or a cup of coffee, cupcakes for the team, just a small token of esteem as a handshake and  knowing their name goes a long way.  They may have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men but they are human at the core.  (Most of them anyway.)

    Around here every day is Happy Sysadmin Day.  Mainly ’cause I’m happy for one more day.

  4. My name is Drew, and I am a sysadmin – Hooray! My boss showed me his appreciation by buying me a gyro today. After 16 years as a sysadmin at so many places, this is the first time I’ve had anything on sysadmin day. Thanks, Will!!

  5. Ken! You are amazing and irreplaceable. Thanks!

  6. Here’s how I know being a sysadmin is hard. My brother is co-founder of  of a mid sized web hosting company. One of his dogs runs to him with a worried look every time he gets a text, because so many texts are customer issues.

    But heavy air conditioning is really a thing of the past. Servers should really be stripped of their fans and submerged in vats of mineral oil. A few pumps and chiller similar to the ones used on saltwater reef aquaria can keep the servers cool at a fraction of the cost of air cooling.

    I just saw a contest where you AND your sysadmin can win some kick-ass prizes like a Nexus 7 http://sysadminday.manageengine.com/ Plus looks like it runs through Aug 17th so you can still enter next week.

    You guys all rock. Thank you :D

    This is my fifteenth year as a “Professional” Sysadmin, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

    But man, 15 years really cements in the Pavlovian response when you get a page, let me tell you!
