Today is System Administrators Appreciation Day

30 07 2004

That’s right, the last Friday in July is System Administrators Appreciation Day. There are suggestions for what to do for your SysAdmin on the page.  I personally would put my vote for the 42” Plasma TV. 

Frighteningly there’s a list of things to do to occupy your System Administrator, and even MORE frightening, is the fact that I’ve seen almost ALL of them 😦

Here’s an excerpt from list as of today (it’s dynamic):

  • Play with all the wires you can find. If you can’t find enough, open something up to expose them. After you have finished, and nothing works anymore, put it all back together and call Ted. Deny that you touched anything and that it was working perfectly only five minutes ago. Ted just loves a good mystery. For added effect you can keep looking over his shoulder and ask what each wire is for.
  • Never write down error messages. Just click OK, or restart your computer. Ted likes to guess what the error message was.

Apperently users are the same the world over – Doh!
