I am happy to announce that today, little more than a year after the start, the blog reached 100.000 visitors. I would like to thank you for all the people who visited, commented and helped the evolution of the site!
After a quite long, about two months intermission, let me celebrate for a moment the birthday of the blog. It was roughly a year ago that I started the RasterGrid Blogosphere with the wish to have a forum where I can share my experience and ideas with others. Meanwhile, I posted several programming related articles about graphics, multiprocessing and published a few demo applications. However, this is not the best part of it… The thing that I’m most proud of is that the blog now has many returning visitors whom I was somehow able to help and that I’ve received a lot of feedback and ideas from you. I’m especially pleased because the list of people who contacted me via the comments section or via e-mail contains several great personalities of the industry with who I wouldn’t be able to meet if I would not start this project. Thank you all for this!
I am proud to announce that the number of visits has just gone over 10000. I would like to share that I haven’t expected such a great success in less than two months. I can hardly thank this enough to all my occasional and especially for my returning visitors!
When I’ve started to write this blog my primary intension was to share my knowledge and ideas, no matter if they are legitimate enough or not. I did this in the hope that the articles on this blog may help others. At the end, it turned out that me myself learned from it a lot as, thanks to You, I’ve got great improvement ideas and feedback about my writings.
Almost a week ago I was talking about the problems with the server on which my blog is stored and I promised that it will be put to another server at least on Tuesday in order to not have any troubles with the reachability of the site. Unfortunately, due to environment problems this actually happened only during last night. Anyway, I am happy that the migration is over now and I hope it won’t happen again.
I started my blog about two weeks ago but already met some problems regarding to the availability of the site. It happened a few times that there was some problem with the Apache Server at the hosting company. This resulted in some short down times of the blog itself. I was saying that “okay, this is not that big problem” so I accepted the barely limited up-time of the server. But today something much worse happened. The server was down for hours, I don’t even know for how much time so I decided to make some action to prevent such problems in the future.
