System Administrator Appreciation Day is coming up quickly once again. The 13th annual event happens on July 27, 2012. Its hard to believe this event has been around for 13 years! And, it’s even harder to imagine, after all this time, that is has yet to be turned into an official Hallmark section at your local department and drug stores.
So, Hallmark has yet to officially recognize it after 13 years. So, what? Its still mutually accepted around the world and celebrated in various ways.
To help push the event into the spotlight this year, SolarWinds is hosting a contest. IT Pros can share their best original “tale from the trenches” on thwack (SolarWinds’ forum site) now through July 27 for a chance to win an iPad, a ThinkGeek gift card or an original piece of artwork depicting their story.

To make it even more official, there’s even a press release for the contest: Calling All IT Pros: thwack Invites You to Share and Vote for Favorite "Tales From the Trenches"
