Celebrate system administrator appreciation day

Tomorrow is the day to show your gratitude to the all too often unappreciated IT staff, on annual system administrator appreciation day.

Tomorrow is the day to show your gratitude to the all too often unappreciated IT staff, on annual system administrator appreciation day.

Launched by sysadminday.com, the last Friday of July has been designated as the day to show you care. “On this special international day, give your System Administrator something that shows that you truly appreciate their hard work and dedication,” the web site begs.

The day belongs to the whole gamut of system administrators including computer, network and Internet administrators, as well as more specialised roles such as Lotus Notes, MS Exchange and IBM mainframe Systems Programmers.

The web site sets out its case for a special day by saying that “system administrators get no respect 364 days a year... 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 recognize 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.”

Should you struggle to think of what to get there is a helpful list of suitably techie suggestions, including handheld GPS unit, Web & Java enabled cell phone, home theatre system, and radio-controlled car.

Avoid promotional marketing gifts with the corporate logo on it, however. “I've already got it. When I signed for the box, I opened it and helped myself,” the site adds.
