Don’t overdo it on System Administrator Appreciation Day [CARTOON]

Be sure to show your sysadmin how much you appreciate him or her today - but keep it sane

Happy System Administrator Appreciation Day! Let’s face it; sysadmins are the office equivalent of MacGyver and without them most of us wouldn’t be able to do our jobs. Be sure, then, to take the time today to show some love to those people who keep our networks and email and servers, not to mention desktops and printers, up and running. If you’re stuck for gift ideas, here are some; or you could compose a poem (or interpretive dance) expressing your gratitude. Of course, it’s also possible to go overboard with these things, so don’t go too nuts.

Enjoy your special days, admins!
