We interrupt our regularly scheduled broadcast to wish a great Happy System <Storage, Server, DBA> Admin Day from the Symantec Connect community team!!!! Because that's all we ever talk about here on Connect, we've decided this is pretty much the coolest holiday ever (with the exception of maybe Talk Like A Pirate Day...). Or as the sysadmin day site describes it "the single greatest 24 hours on the planet"… they might be biased too.
In prior years you've shared your stories about the greatest challenges, heroic efforts... We've really appreciated the stories, and instead of sympathy or condolences, your peers (and us) thought they were pretty entertaining. You laugh too, when it's not happening to you, right? So tell us about your biggest meltdown, how you saved the day on a project, or send us a photo of your wildest wiring job in the comments section below. We'll give the first 3 of you a passel of extra reward points.
So post your stories in the comments below and remember to tell your boss that today is INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR APPRECIATION DAY
and maybe you'll even get a free lunch from the boss, too. Better still, here's a list of gift suggestions from the official SysAdminDay site
, which you could conveniently forward to them.
While we're sharing the Admin-love today, we'd like to make a big shout-out to the folk behind the scenes (there is a nameless hoard you never see) here at our Symantec Connect site, who keep this beast well-fed and tended. They make us look good on a daily basis but we couldn't keep Connect running without them!
Happy Sys/Storage/Server/DB Admin Day,
From all of the Symantec Connect Community Managers
