Sysadmin Day

Today is Sysadmin Appreciation Day. Each last Friday of July.

 

Sysadmins are the guys making the IT world go round. They take care of the computers are up and running well. They are maintaining the (huge) networks inside and outside the companies. They are maintaining the internet backbone, the routers and other network stuff, the software components, and the hardware.

This memorial day was created in 2000 to say THANK YOU to all sysadmins. I used to be a sysadmin for most parts of my working life. Therefore it’s important for me to do so. In general, the sysadmins are not appreciated for their work. Instead, they are often considered as hindering the work with all their regulations. But, all the rules are necessary for having a healthy and well-running network.

In our tiny monochromia world, it’s Joe, who works much behind the scenes and makes sure, our guests get a high-quality and reliable experience. Thank you, Joe!

The other Thank You goes to the guys at Automattic for having brought the software and the platform to us.

Not mentioning, i.e. Tim Berners-Lee from CERN who invented the principles of WWW, and the other guys inventing UNIX and Linux, or those responsible for standardizing network protocols or bringing the internet to your end device either on your desk at home or company or in your hand.

  1. As a former sysadmin, I can vouch for your description.

    Thankfully I’m retired now, and no longer have users literally screaming at me over the phone on a weekly basis over policies I didn’t create but was required to enforce.

    Don’t shoot the messenger, folks!

  2. Excellent image Andre 👍🏻 To tell the truth I had no idea today was sysadmin day. I had no idea a day dedicated to sysadmins even existed. Thank you for the shout out 😊
