National System Admin Day

Just last night I was saying to my wife that there ought to be a National IT Month. Why not? There seems to be one for everything else even though there are only 12 months in the year. BTW, is there some national agency that adjucates contentious “month of” conflicts? Anyway, today I’m going through some email and I see a plug for National SysAdmin Day. Close enough. That removes the pressure on me to create one. Check it out:

What’s particular interesting is that our Senior System Administrator is named Ted. While the list of indignities perpretrated upon sysadmins is fairly comprehensive, I pretty sure my colleagues could easily double it with real life anecdotes that have occured at our instituion.
