If you work in any sort of office environment, there’s an excellent chance that your business employs someone (or maybe multiple someones) as system administrators, or SysAdmins. These are people who keep computers and networks functioning—they often work behind the scenes but they’re also the folks you call when something doesn’t work. These clever and talented people are often among the least recognized and appreciated, but trust me: most businesses would collapse without their expertise. So show your SysAdmin some love on System Administrator Appreciation Day, celebrated on the last Friday of each July. (Of course, you should show them love all the time, but today, perhaps that love could take a more tangible form.)
