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

By  

Cartoon showing a sysadmin sitting on a throne looking bored. Two men are waiting in line. One says to the other, 'I'm all for Sysadmin Appreciation Day, but this is silly.' Another man is on one kneee kissing the sysadmin's hand and says, 'Thanks for all you do, your grace.' Another man is holding open a box of something and says, 'Where would you like me to put this frankincense legal got for you?'

If you treat your sysadmin like royalty today, maybe think more "constitutional monarch" than "absolute ruler"

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!
