This contest is now closed!! Our SysQueen of 2011 is Lisa and our SysKing of 2011 is David! Direct your homage to these great BOFHs, and if you're not them, good luck next year!
It doesn't matter what time it is, where you are, or what you're doing online. Somewhere a sysadmin is working behind the scenes to keep you plugged in.
That's why we celebrate Sysadmin Day on the last Friday of July every year. We don't know about you, but we desperately need our tech fix--and for incriminating emails not to show up magically in our boss's inbox.
So when we say you can enter between now and Thursday, July 28 to win a $500 shopping spree without nominating your favorite Sysadmin, remember that it might be in your best interest to share the spoils.
But if you do have a much-loved Sysadmin that you'd like to honor, tell us why on the second entry page and we'll share your essay with our pageant judges: the fine folks at The Mary Sue and Geekosystem. They'll post their favorites as the contest progresses, and will choose the ThinkGeek 2011 SysQueen and SysKing.
The SysQueen and SysKing will each win:
- iCADE + 16GB wifi iPad
- Ironkey, 4GB
- Luxeed U7 keyboard (black)
- USB Doomsday Device Hub
- Timmy's Tactical Attache
- Red Swingline stapler
- Star Wars Dark Side coffee
- Phantom Keystroker v2
- RTFM mug
- "I'm here because you broke something" t-shirt (men's and women's)
- One mystery prize provided by The Mary Sue and Geekosystem
- And one custom "SysKing" or "SysQueen" pageant sash to keep them company while maintaining network latency into the wee hours of the night.
So enter to win a $500 shopping spree for yourself--or nominate your favorite Sysadmin--by 11:59pm ET on Thursday, July 28! Watch The Mary Sue and Geekosystem for updates, and we'll announce the winning SysQueen and SysKing on Sysadmin Day, Friday, July 29.
