SysAdmin Day | System Administrator Appreciation Day


Your network is secure, your computer is up and running, and your printer is jam-free. Why? Because you’ve got an awesome sysadmin or maybe a whole IT department keeping your business up and running. So say IT loud; say IT proud …

SysAdmin Day | System Administrator Appreciation Day

Happy SysAdmin Day!

Wait… what exactly is SysAdmin Day? Oh, it’s only the single greatest 24 hours on the planet… and pretty much the most important holiday of the year. It’s also the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the heroic men and women who, come rain or shine, prevent disasters, keep IT secure and put out tech fires left and right.

At this point, you may be thinking, “Great. I get it. My sysadmin is a rock star. But now what?” Glad you asked! Proper observation of SysAdmin Day includes but is not limited to:

  • Cake & Ice cream
  • Pizza
  • Cards
  • Gifts
  • Words of gratitude
  • Custom t-shirts celebrating the epic greatness of your SysAdmin
  • Balloons
  • Streamers
  • Confetti
  • Show your appreciation

Friday, July 25, 2014, is the 15th annual System Administrator Appreciation Day. On this special international day, give your System Administrator something that shows that you truly appreciate their hard work and dedication. All day Friday, 24 hours, your own local time-zone.

Let’s face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work. But seriously, we are asking for a nice token gift and some public acknowledgement. It’s the least you could do.

Consider all the daunting tasks and long hours weekends too. Let’s be honest, sometimes we don’t know our System Administrators as well as they know us. Remember this is one day to recognize your System Administrator for their workplace contributions and to promote professional excellence. Thank them for all the things they do for you and your business.

See how Elon Musk is building the ‘Iron Man’ lab with tech you can buy | The Verge

The workspace of the future is in Elon Musk’s lab. Using a variety of virtual reality and gesture-sensing tools, Musk has set up a system that allows himself and his engineers to design and manipulate models of rocket parts using just their hands. He’s compared it to the Iron Man laboratory, and in many ways, it looks like just that.But you won’t need the technological expertise of Tony Stark in order to make one: Musk employs a Leap Motion Controller, an Oculus Rift, and a projector — among other common tools — in order to make the setup work. Not all of those are necessarily being used at once though. Musk says that he began with the Leap Motion, and then expanded to more advanced setups, such as one that involved projecting 3D mockups onto a translucent pane of glass.

These New Smart Bricks Are Like Lego for Real Buildings

If these lumps of concrete look familiar, that’s because they take some of their inspiration from Lego—but there’s more to them than child’s play.

Created by a company called Kite Bricks, the blocks are actually referred to as Smart Brick, or S-Bricks to their chums. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, but all feature rows of knobs along their tops which slot into voids at the bottom of others. They’re fastened together with special adhesive, rather than mortar. Steel bars can also be inserted through channels in the bricks to add strength.

Kite Bricks can put together kits of the bricks, including standardized windows and doors, allowing a simple house to be constructed while creating virtually no mess or debris. But aside from ease of manufacture, the bricks have other practical features, too: they have open internal voids within them to provide insulation, and they feature easily accessible channels through which plumbing and wiring can run.

Sadly, the bricks are currently at the prototype stage, and the company needs to raise around $3 million for them to go into full-scale production. Maybe Lego could invest to target the most grown up of markets? [Kite Bricks via Wired.co.uk]
