Friday, July 29, is System Administrator Appreciation Day. Celebrated annually on the last Friday in July, this year marks the sixth that System Administrator Appreciation Day has been in existence. As the official Web site proclaims, "A special day, once a year, to acknowledge the worthiness and appreciation of the person occupying the role, especially as it is often this person who really keeps the wheels of your company turning." Rock on, sys admins!
