The ThinkGeek Newsletter!

July 9, 2004

Hiya There!

The Sysadmin is a very special species of geek. The type of person that spends his or her day ensuring that *your* day at the office doesn't suck. Often mistreated by the suits and under appreciated by the folks they support, it's about time Sysadmins receive their own special appreciation day. When is it? Friday, July 30th! What do you do? Appreciate your sysadmin, lavish them with praise, monkeys, gifts, incense - whatever it takes to make them feel like the demi-gods they are. No, ThinkGeek didn't create this day, it's a legitimate appreciation day - go Google it! Keep reading to enter to win stuff and also get a free shirt this month at ThinkGeek as we send mad props to the Sysadmins of the world...

Perfect for sysadmins, co-workers and clueballs alike! This fine t-shirt is yours free for the rest of July when you spend over $50 at ThinkGeek. What's it say? Very basically; "Have you Grokked Your SYSADMIN (Mail Server Gimp, Script Monkey, Tech Support Lackey, IT Ninja, Webmonster, DB Wizard, PBX Pro, Spamslayer, Network Traffic Cop, Lart Wielder, 42) Today?". What's it mean? It means bow down to your local Sysadmin. The alternative is incurring their wrath. Believe us, you never want to incur the wrath of your local Sysadmin. That could be worse that unleashing hyper-killing ninja bunnies on a colony of legless mice on Valium.
