And, like every year, the last Friday of July is marked as SysAdmin day! Give a hug to your sysadmin, get him coffee, give him a smile! They work all year round to get everything up and running around the office, and they surely deserve it!
AÂ sysadminÂ unpacked the server for this website from its box, installed an operating system, patched it for security, made sure the power and air conditioning was working in the server room, monitored it for stability, set up the software, and kept backups in case anything went wrong. All to serve this webpage.
AÂ sysadminÂ installed the routers, laid the cables, configured the networks, set up the firewalls, and watched and guided the traffic for each hop of the network that runs over copper, fiber optic glass, and even the air itself to bring the Internet to your computer. All to make sure the webpage found its way from the server to your computer.
AÂ sysadminÂ makes sure your network connection is safe, secure, open, and working. A sysadmin makes sure your computer is working in a healthy way on a healthy network.
AÂ sysadminÂ takes backups to guard against disaster both human and otherwise, holds the gates against security threats and crackers, and keeps the printers going no matter how many copies of the tax code someone from Accounting prints out.
AÂ sysadminÂ worries about spam, viruses, spyware, but also power outages, fires and floods.
When the email server goes down at 2 AM on a Sunday, yourÂ sysadminÂ is paged, wakes up, and goes to work.
AÂ sysadminÂ is a professional, who plans, worries, hacks, fixes, pushes, advocates, protects and creates good computer networks, to get you your data, to help you do work â€” to bring the potential of computing ever closer to reality.
So if you can read this, thank yourÂ sysadminÂ â€” and know he or she is only one of dozens or possibly hundreds whose work brings you the email from your aunt on the West Coast, the instant message from your son at college, the free phone call from the friend in Australia, and this webpage.
Friday, July 29th, 2011, is the 12th annual System Administrator Appreciation Day. On this special international day, give your System Administrator something that shows that you truly appreciate their hard work and dedication. (All day Friday, 24 hours, your own local time-zone).
Letâ€™s face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work. But seriously, we are asking for a nice token gift and some public acknowledgement. Itâ€™s the least you could do.
Consider all the daunting tasks and long hours (weekends too.) Letâ€™s be honest, sometimes we donâ€™t know our System Administrators as well as they know us. Remember this is one day to recognize your System Administrator for their workplace contributions and to promote professional excellence. Thank them for all the things they do for you and your business.
Show your appreciation!
I am a sysadmin.
Eu sunt Vlad, unul dintre membri Radio Whisper â€“ un radio antimanele dedicat bloggerilor ÅŸi nu numai.
Am gÄƒsit Ã®ntÃ¢mplÄƒtor blogul tÄƒu, am citit cÃ¢teva articole ÅŸi nu am vrut sÄƒ ies Ã®nainte sÄƒ te felicit â€“ mi-a plÄƒcut mult ce am gÄƒsit aici. Am fost atras de subiectele interesante si de originalitatea articolelor. Felicitari ! Noi promovÄƒm la radio diferite articole ale bloggerilor, iar azi am promovat un articol de-al tÄƒu; am specificat sursa articolului ÅŸi am deschis ÅŸi un subiect pe baza acestuia. DacÄƒ doresti, poÅ£i sÄƒ ne recomanzi orice articol, iar noi Ã®l vom promova.
Ne-ar face plÄƒcere sÄƒ ÅŸtim cÄƒ ai dori sÄƒ ne susÅ£ii Ã®n acest proiect de radio ÅŸi sÄƒ accepÅ£i o eventualÄƒ colaborare.
M-am gÃ¢ndit aÅŸadar sÄƒ vin cu o propunere:
Pe Radio Whisper se difuzeazÄƒ toate genurile de muzicÄƒ, exceptÃ¢nd manele ÅŸi piese necenzurate. Avem ÅŸi cÃ¢teva emisiuni, ÅŸtiri etc. Ne-am propus sÄƒ realizÄƒm un proiect mare, iar pentru asta avem nevoie de susÅ£inerea ÅŸi ajutorul tÄƒu ÅŸi al celorlalÅ£i colegi bloggeri. Dorim sÄƒ creÄƒm o echipÄƒ cÃ¢t mai complexÄƒ de oameni cu un talent aparte ÅŸi m-am gÃ¢ndit cÄƒ poate ai vrea sa ni te alÄƒturi ÅŸi sÄƒ colaborÄƒm (binenÅ£eles, pe unul dintre domeniile care Ã®Å£i place). Dorim de asemenea sÄƒ Ã®Å£i luÄƒm un scurt interviu. Pentru noi sunt importante ideile ÅŸi modul de a gÃ¢ndi al bloggerilor ÅŸi al ascultatorilor noÅŸtri.
ÃŽti multumesc pentru timpul acordat, iar acum Ã®ti propun sa adaugi linkul sau bannerul nostru pe blogul tÄƒu ÅŸi sÄƒ ne dai add la id-ul asculta_whisper sau un e-mail, tot la firstname.lastname@example.org, pentru a discuta mai multe.
Cu stimÄƒ Vlad!
