We're celebrating the heroes of ones and zeros, the guys and gals who keep our organizations running smoothly. Here's a big shout out to everyone who furiously toils away, responding to urgent alerts, working long hours and sorting through processes that mystify most of us.
Feel free to laugh openly at our PEBKAC errors, respond to our email requests with tl;dr, and spend your day answering your phone "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" Without you, we couldn't function and this day acknowledges that fact.
The Connect Community Managers would also like to thank the development team who keeps us running. We have a great group of scary smart developers working hard behind the scenes to make us look good, and keep the Connect site running.
Our Reward to You!
To celebrate SysAdmin Day this year we're going to reward you for sharing your workspace with us. Uploads a photo of your workspace in the Comments section and we’ll reward you with 100 Connect Points. It doesn’t matter if you have 6 monitors, a complete collection of Star Wars Lego action figures, or the cleanest desk known to man - we'd like to see it
If you don't want to share a photo you can tell us what lengths you've gone to in order to keep your space safe from being invaded by co-workers (we've all been there, right?)
Of course there are some rules, as I mentioned, one photo/comment per person is eligible for the reward and it must be uploaded before Midnight August 3 PDT. If you need help uploading a photo to you comment, there is a How To post here: How to upload an image
