I officially petition, that from this day forward, Sysadmin Day, now be known as International BoFH Day!
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 …
That's why we string the piano wire we buy as 'Cat (n) cabling' on the returns between the desks at about 1 foot above chair seat level when setting that kinda quote up.
Those that fall for that little one usually forget to turn off the PC before ducking, so we have an easy time of sending the suicide note around (with the obligatory resetting of the global network times for a fraction of a second so the timestamps all work out nicely).
>>sometimes we don't know our System Administrators as well as they know us.
Hmmmm... Now that's not at all sinister, or worrying, or anything.
Someone's been reading BOFH too much methinks.
So, how does one celebrate Sysadmin day? Cake, cards, furtive fumblings under the mistletoe in the server cave? Or, I guess, beer.
or the transperambulation of pseudo-cosmic antimatter?
whatever the cause, it seems strange that our servers went titsup today and so our sysadmins were called into action to save the day.
Hurrah to them! on the one hand
but on the other, you can't help but wonder if they didn't perhaps tip the scales in their favour, considering the day and all
I would like to wish all you SysAd's a very happy SysAdDay.
I used to be a SysAd until some greedy bankers (other spellings are fine too) screwed the pooch and I got to spend 14 months unemployed.
I would offer you a beer but we Support Chimps don't get paid anywhere near as much,...
and the perks are non-existant compared to SysAdPerks.
