Finally a tech related holiday has come. Today is system administrators day. A byte of cake anyone? OK that was bad but what is a system administrator. Essentially they are the people that keep everything running when it comes to your workplaces network, servers and all the communication that runs through it like webpages and backups. As we all know communication is the circulation that keeps any business running. Without a proper systems admin threats from things lie spam, hackers, and just general wear would eventually stop the server from functioning properly and thus stopping the normal flow of a workplace. To read more about is check the sysadminday site. They have everything from explanations to photos which I really recommend. So to all the sys admins out there I raise half a bottle of Mountain Dew and a bag of your favorite snack cake and say thank you.
I recommend celebrating with the movie that first brought computers and their possibilities to the screen Wargames. I saw this as a kid and was forever hooked on computers. Also it is the 25th anniversary of this great geek movie. Here is a link to the trailer.
