Happy 8th March!

Posted by Jørgen S. Kjølsen on Saturday, March 8. 2014 in Congratulations!

In Russia and most other places of the old Warsaw Pact countries, the 8th of March is something special; Today, if you are a woman and is walking on the streets, you are "attacked" by happy greetings and flowers.

A good amount of my friends are Russians, Ukranians, Latvians and Poles and for all of those, 8th of March is usually a day with greetings - so therefore I will send a shout out to all of them... and to all other women who I know.

Thank you, sys admin!

Today it's the official annual world wide Sysadmin Day

This is the day where you thank the IT tech guys who fix the servers at your work; make sure you can check Facefook or even read this blog. They work so you can send emails. And if you have IP telephones THEY are the ones fixing them - not the cable guy from the phone company.

So what is a sys admin? And
What Does a System Administrator Do?

What is a system administrator? Well, look at the title. Administrator of systems. A system administrator takes care of systems.

Now, most people read “system” to mean an individual computer, and think that all asysadmin does is clean viruses off your computer and replace your monitor. That’s not wrong — but it is only one page of the whole story.

A real computing system is larger. Very few computers work just on their own anymore; when you use the web, play a game online, share files with a friend, or send email, you’re using a complex and intricate collection of computers, networks and software that come together to do the job you’re asking.

A sysadmin manages these systems — they figure out how to bring storage from one server, processing from another, backups from a third and networking from a fourth computer all together, working seamlessly. For you.

A sysadmin is a professional, with complex skills, ethical challenges, and a daunting job. Many, if not most, people find computers difficult to use, and sometimes they’re unreliable. Being a sysadmin doesn’t absolve someone of dealing with unreliable computers. Oh, one can dream of such a day, but the opposite is true; no one sees more dead computers in a day than a sysadmin. No one sees them doing truly baffling things, and no one has more stories of computers failing, acting possessed, or even catching on fire.

The challenge of a sysadmin is making a computing system — a whole network of resources and servers and software — work together, work right, work even when parts of it fail — and work for you.

That’s the most important job of the sysadmin: to work for you. To take the staggering array of technologies, acronyms, protocols, networks, vendors, budgets, limited time, competing products, and threats to the computing network, assemble them all together in a working system. Their job is not only to be the geek in the corner who types all day. What they’re doing is bringing these diverse pieces of technology into order, and fitting them together to fill your needs at work and home; to translate the world of computing into human terms.

This is a daunting task and we’re still at the cutting edge; we’re not perfect, and the field is still figuring itself out. Being a sysadmin takes a certain boldness, to be one of the first people to take on the challenge of turning difficult computers into easy to use systems. But hundreds of thousands of people are working in that field now, from the entry level help desk tech to the corporate CIOs and everyone in between.

So when you think of a sysadmin, think of the people who run the servers that help you clean it off, the people who run your backups to make sure your data is safe, the people who bring you the network, the people who monitor it for security — and yes, the person who cleans the virus off your computer and replaces your monitor.

The purpose of the day today is to say thank you to you system admin. Weather if it's a gift or ust a thank you - everything counts!
364 days a year the SA is used to work but never really get's a thank you, rather than a "That's what you are here for".
Even when we see our family we are asked "Can you fix my computer? You are so good at it"

So please: Today; thank your sysadmin!
