Community Notes

myITforum.com Holiday Schedule

The holiday season is upon us. This holiday season is very special for myITforum.com. But, before I go into that, I want to give you the holiday schedule.

Friday, December 15th is our last day of full operation this year. That means things like new article publications and newsletter delivery will cease until after the first of the year. Everything will start back up on January 3rd, 2007.

So, Happy Holidays folks! And, have a great start to your new year.

Things like the web blogs, the Wiki system, the web-based forums and email discussion lists, and the FAQ system will still be going strong, though, so you can keep in touch with your community buddies over the holidays.

But, I did mention that this holiday season is particularly special for myITforum.com. This 2 week hiatus for myITforum.com will give us time to finish up on a total revamp for the myITforum.com site. When the new year starts you will start to see some neat, new features for myITforum.com. And, not just that, myITforum.com 2.0 (long overdue) is in the wings and you will start to see the next version of myITforum.com roll out. We have some really cool things coming for the site and the community in the next year, and the beginning of the new year will trumpet the start of of that.

So, sit back, relax, have a great holiday season enjoying friends and family, and know that when we return great things are on their way. It’s kind of like our Christmas present to all of you for being the best, most faithful community in the world.
