It appears that this site had its first public appearance / breath of life on or around the 23 Feb 03. I believe the initial post under this Section is long overdue.Citrix_Guy wrote:Every great rock album has a "Thank you" section full of names and places you've never heard of... Why should softgridguru.com be any different?
Even though it appears that some of the original 'band' members no longer administer / participate, I've noticed a few specific members that have stepped up to the plate & provided continuous inputs to make this a worthwhile forum and kept the 'band' name alive since I started following the 'band' in Nov 06. (I can't believe I've been at this for just over 8 months already).
Since this forum (as does many private - no commercial sponsorship) lives on volunteers with volunteered / 'free' information giving, I thank all 'Fan Club' members (forum users) for asking specific questions, providing detailed reponses, and information product updates up front.
I want to give a special thanks to those of you that make a living using this product through paid consulting and / or administering a SoftGrid environment and providing valuable & timely feedback to keep the information in this forum current & creditable.
My personal & specific special 'Thanks' go out to what I perceive as the 'lead band members' in SoftGridGuru.com's current international line-up - seq_tim, kkaminsk, rspruijt, and ksaunam with special guest appearances with detailed input from smileyej. I don't want to forget any other members or make someone feel left out, but these individuals have stood out above the rest during my time here.
As with any rock album's "Thank You" section, there's normally a product endorsement section of specific items used as well. This would be my unofficial list of products (hardware / software companies) that make this 'band's' forum flourish: Softricity for getting the idea rolling & breaking the application installation paradigm; Microsoft for seeing the potential & hopefully exploiting this technology to its fullest and providing the underlying platform on which this technology functions; those third-party software application vendors whose products work with this technology; and all those compatable hardware vendors where the software runs (the list would get way to long if I listed every hardware component like a true band would do... TAMA drums, SABIAN cymbals, VATER sticks, ...).
Now it's your turn - SoftGridGuru.com Fan Club members - to provide comment or poll input.
Keep on Rockin'!
