System Administrator Appreciation Day

I have learned (from BoingBoing, TeXblog, and a few other places) that today is System Administrator Appreciation Day.

I don’t know who the system administrators are for this site. I pay a company, NearlyFreeSpeech, to host this site,, and I have not had any communication with NearlyFreeSpeech, save a few automated emails reminding me to renew domains, et cetra, so I haven’t had an opportunity to get to know my sysadmins. But I will say this: in the four or so years since I started using NearlyFreeSpeech to host my stuff, I have not, to my knowledge, experienced a second of downtime. So, NearlyFreeSpeech sysadmins, even though I don’t know who you are, you all rock, and you are very much appreciated!
