SysAdmin Appreciation Day

Blimey, the “last Friday in July” has rolled round again quickly, and today marks International SysAdmin Appreciation Day.

So, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the sysadmins I interact with in IT Services!

Not just the linux/unix guys I work directly with, but the Windows team who provide me with useful things like authentication and RDP services, the network team who keep us talking to each other, the storage and backups team who provide me with somewhere to keep my data and anyone else who provides me with a service I consume!

You’re all doing great work which no one notices until it breaks, and then you unfailingly go above and beyond to restore service as soon as possible.

Thankyou my fellow sysadmins! I couldn’t do my job without you all doing yours.
