Happy SysAdmin Day!

SysAdmin guy

SysAdmin day comes but once a year and when it does… it’s an excuse to watch YouTube and eat cake in the office…

364 days a year, SysAdmins are firefighters, medics and law enforcement officers. They put out fires when it comes to things like forgotten passwords, they nurse servers back to health, and they police improper use of the Internet.

But for one day, they get cut some slack. On SysAdmin Day, tech teams around the world are given a well-deserved pat on the back and given the excuse for a little down time.

Today’s that day! SysAdmin Day is here, so here are a few of our favourite ways to clock off while you’re clocked-in.

Get Your Own Back Via YouTube
