Happy SysAdmin Day

Dear Reader,

Every last Friday of July it is time to say thank you to our/your system administrator.

We thank our sysadmin for keeping our servers alive and running and up-to-date, for making sure we can surf the seas of the internet, and reminding us once in a while to “switch it off and on again”.

And here is a recent chat of two people meeting online:

She: What do you do professionally?

He: I’m in it, but not in an IT company

She: Ahhh, a coffee junkie, who presses a few buttons all day, never picks up the phone, and is always stressed out? ^^

He: Coffee … well, you’re right. And what are you doing?

She: Assistant to the managing director …

He: Ah, so you make the coffee, have a relationship with your boss, and buy the flowers for his wife?

She: touche :D


Send the guy or woman some cake, coffee, beer, or what ever s/he fancies.

  1. It would be hard for me to sleep with my manager (if I accept the job offer) as they are the same sex as me!!!!!!

  2. Casp – that doesn’t stop some people!

    ER – aren’t you our system administrator? I say a huge thank you for your input into keeping me up and running, let alone this odd forum. LOL

  3. Just for interest, if this sort of thing grabs you…

    August 2015 will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years. The Chinese call it “Silver Pockets Full” and say send this message to your friends and in 4 days money will surprise you.

    1. Three Ladies are playing the fourth hole at a well-known golf course
      on the edge of Southampton, when a naked man wearing a paper bag over his head jumps from the trees and runs across the green.

      The three ladies stand in awe at the size of his manhood.

      The first lady says, ‘He is definitely not my husband.’

      The second lady, gazes at his manhood and says, ‘He is not mine either.’

      After a very considered inspection, the third lady finally says, ‘He’s
      not even a member of this golf club’

  4. I find it hard to believe that you are male, you tug at strings at every chance you get.
    Anyway I know nothing of inputs so, I would like to be kept out of this.

  5. It is fair to say that tubedrivers will not show to work on Wednesday.
    I truly wish that was different.
    I have nothing bad to say about them as I cannot get to work without them.
    I mean we all understand their point.
    We were patient before, I am sure them too, but patience and understanding should not be expected.
    They are filled with ultimatums and expectations while we bystand a situation we barely understand.
    It is like a bad joke is the ruin of everything.
    So, that I am without too much stress waiting for the no show.
    Dear tubedrivers, I luv ya but fix this SAP or leave me be to start driving. And if you are angry with my words, sorry.

  6. Dearest Casper
    If your boss does not let you work from home for the day, get up early and take the bus and walk.
    Millions of others have to do the same.
    Failing this, take a day of holiday.
    Any more problems ?

  7. Failing that, ask Glynsky to give you a lift in one of his old cars. Be prepared to push it.
    Flying to Vilnius. No Underground there.

  8. I did not expect anything else from you Smiles.
    No problems here. We are very different. I am going for the overground. Good luck to the rest.
    Let it be known now, I will be finding my own way. Be stubborn elsewhere tubedrivers and leave us alone. This is final.

  9. Now. Lets call time on posting all our feelings online. After all I want to start being a good example esp my tobechildren!

  10. Dear Philippa
    I can agree with 5 Saturdays and 5 Fridays in August 2015 but there are only 4 Fridays. Do not believe in Chinese Propaganda but check your calendar.
