26th July - Systems Administrators day

Systems administrators around the world are being celebrated July 26 for their behind-the-scenes work in keeping the networks of the organizations running smoothly, as part of the loosely organized and whimsical 14th annual SysAdmin Day. It was first created by system administrator Ted Kekatos on July 28, 2000, according to a report in Wikipedia. "Kekatos was inspired to create the special day by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator is presented with flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as thanks for installing new printers. Kekatos had just installed several of the same model printers at his workplace," the story reported. Since then, SysAdmin Day has been celebrated on the last Friday in July. <more>
