    Default * TechExams’ 5th Anniversary *

    Yes, another year has passed again. It’s truly amazing how time seems to go faster and faster. It’s like every year they take away another month. Regardless of the obvious growth each year, for me this is a time to look back at the previous 12 months, contemplate the progress we made, and try to get an idea of where we are heading too.

    I haven’t been able to write as many TechNotes and practice exams as I planned to (what else is new...). I’ve spent most of the past almost 12 months working on project for TechExams.net for which I’ll still need several months more to finish it. But before I do that, I’m going to catch up with some needed updates and additions of TechNotes and practice questions for several exams.

    I did finish the long overdue updated PDF for the Network+ TechNotes recently, and I’m currently finalizing a couple of new Security+ TechNotes. For the next couple of months, you can expect to see a lot of material added for the Windows Vista exams. The first 70-620 TechNotes are already online. I’m not forgetting about the other vendors and exams though, I already started on a new/updated practice exam for A+, I will continue with the CCNA TechNotes and TechLabs very soon (and get some Cisco certs myself again). JD and I started on some new material, including tutorials, for the .NET 2.0 exams, which we’ll start posting soon too.

    As you may have noticed a couple of months ago, we finally moved to a ‘bigger’ server. The main reason for this was not to speed up the site, but to accommodate for newer software allowing us to add some new sections to TechExams.net, like the Blogs in which JDMurray is posting some very interesting reads, but also to allow a major upgrade of TechExams.net as a whole, including several requested features for the forums. Don’t worry, any changes to the design will be minor, it’s primarily about adding functionality, and based on the responses of some beta testers it should be a welcomed change.

    I also want to take this opportunity to thank the moderators again for the great job you are all doing in and outside the forums and for keeping me sane. Wouldn’t be able to get this far without you.

    Last but not least, I want to say thanks to all our visitors and members that make up this great community for their support and motivation. As I mentioned today three years ago, and fortunately still applies, I’m proud of the contents of the site as a whole, but I am at least as proud that 99.9% of our members treat others with respect and help each other in a professional manner.

    I look forward to this 6th year and I hope we, and you, will continue to help out others pass their exams and contribute to a professional and skillful IT career!

    Thanks!
    Johan Hiemstra

    Keep up the good work Johan, this site is a great resource for both furthering knowledge and social networking, and is a fantastic release from the cut and dry boredom of reading straight from books.

    I can't wait to see what new features are over the horizons

    I would just like to take this oppertunity to thank Johan and his team for the great work they have done. In to its 6th Year and as a community it grows everyday. Over the last 3 years I have been lurking in the Cisco forums where I have seen it expand, and the number of memebers increase significantly to what I beleive is the best on the Net. This forum prides itself on decent and honest memeber.

    It can't be an easy job keeping on top of this but you have done a really good job doing so. The tools/technotes and posts of this forum have been invaluable to me over the years. I look forward to many more years of this great site.

    Happy Anniversary

    Default Happy Birthday Techexams.net

    Johann and staff,

    Thanks for a great resource which I appreciate the luxury of being a member of. I joined in 2003 when my IT career really took off, and I can honestly say that your site being here has been a immense help to my career and its goals. This translates to greater financial rewards in the workplace, and for this I and my two Miniature Schnauzers Elsa and Dusty can not thank you enough.

    I've visited other study/certification sites, and quite honestly none of them even come close to this place.I support you by visiting your advertisers sites and I would encourage everyone else to do the same. It's really the least we can do.

    Regards,


    Rob Holmes

    Indeedy, many thanks all for making this site an invaluable resource, and hell just a good place to hang out. It's so rare these days to find a forum that prides content and respect over anonymous egos.

    Congratulations on another successful year!

    This site continues to be a relevant & valuable tool.

    Definitely seeing what others are able to accomplish helps inspire all of us to do more than what we might otherwise.
