Happy Valentines Day to my favorite computer system administrator:


You only hear from me
when my computer is blue.
So this Valentine's Day
I'm saying "Thank you!"

I admit my computer problems,
like it's a reality-show confessional.
But you hide your frown,
and act very professional.

I think that you're great!
I know I'm a pest!
But I bring my troubles to you,
because you're the best!

Some roses are red,
some roses are pink.
No candy this year,
but my card's at this link:
http://picconf.org/vday

Thank you for everything you do! Happy Valentine's Day!

Sincerely

(your name here)

So if I send this does it mean I don't have to bake them cookies this year?

Yes. I take good care of them and they take (very) good care of me. Guess who is getting a souped up new computer and big monitor next week :)

(Actually, I think I bought the Dunkin' Donuts last year but I have baked cookies and such in the past.)

Ok, here's my official decision.

1. You have to still bake for them.
2. You have to encourage them to come to the conference, and submit a proposal to speak about how they are able to be so awesome.

Officially yours,
Tom

I used to bribe mine preemptively. I'd bring them snacks/cookies at random times with the understanding that I'd get help when I needed it quickly and without attitude. Win-win solution!
