        Sorry for the late reply folks, but I've had a day of being showered with champagne, chocolates, single malt and some of the more attractive female staff, as all the (l)users tried to show their appreciation of the difficult and demanding work we SysAdmins do :lol

              I don't think this day will be ever as appreciated like secretary day.
              Instead taking work away of your managers, you most likely give more work to your management. And most of the time IT costs.
