Sysadmin Day

Pat yourselves on your back for fixing all those servers,
- doing backup,recovery and user creation.
Pat yourselves for saying no to root and yes to sudo,
- for writing ACLs and scripting voodoo...

Pat again for waking at 2am
- just to put your cellphone on charge.
..for dealing with people
- who wanted everything a day past

Pat again for reading 650 mails a day.
- for blocking SYNFIN floods on ur network
..for carrying those secure-ids
- even while you are not at work.

When you are done patting... please stop by a bar
- pick your pagers and throw away..
'cause you all need a break once in a while
- atleast on the feaking System Admin Day !!
