Today is the day when we celebrate that rare of species, systems administrators, the one day a year when it is encouraged to be nice to the people who say "sorry but you do have to use a login password" and "no, it is not our policy to let you take home computers, even if your five-year-old is a whiz with them". So, be nice to
them us, we're all that stops you from certain doom the first time you delete an email that you really, really wanted. So happy systems administration day, my fellow freaks! :-)

If vector graphics editing gets you going, you might like to take a look at the latest version of Inkscape, a completely free vector graphics editor for Linux, Windows and MacOSX.
