View Full Version : SysAdminDay Ubuntu Hour in Kitchener-Waterloo

July 11th, 2014, 05:01 AM
Hi Everybodeee! Every year, the last Friday in July is System Administrator Appreciation Day. A SysAdmin is the person who keeps your servers serving, your backups backed up, and your network, um, networked. Most people only deal with their SysAdmin when things go wrong, but on the last Friday in July they shower their SysAdmins with gifts, chocolate cake and ice cream.

In Kitchener-Waterloo we celebrate SysAdminDay with Egg Rolls and Guy Ding. If you're a SysAdmin, aspire to be one, are friends with or married to one, or just want to see what SysAdmins look like, come to this special Ubuntu Hour and celebrate with us.

What : SysAdminDay Ubuntu Hour in Kitchener-Waterloo
When : Friday, 25 July 2014 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Oh Noes! The Egg Roll King Restaurant will be closed for a month while Tony and his family are away on vacation. Whatever shall we do?
