Remember Me? Yes, I'm Back.

Is this really an introductory post, or "Hey guys remember me?"

You may remember me from my old website which ran on DNN, it actually started out on version 1. Remember those days, when DNN wasn't DNN, but IBuySpy Workshop?

Or you may remember me from "Professional DotNetNuke 4" that I co-authored.

Or if you have teenage girls, that are Jonas Brothers fans, you may know me from another project I did with my own daughters, and that was starting the largest fan site for the Jonas Brothers all on DNN. The site grew at such a rate we were getting over 75,000 unique visitors per day, at any time during the day, the site had around 65 current anonymous users in perf mon (yes that's simultaneous requests). We ran this site on just two boxes, one four core web server, and an 8 core SQL box running 15k RPM drives, 8GB of memory. And it just hummed along nicely. The site grew to be the family business for a while which caused me to drop away from being active in the DNN community.

We eventually sold our company, and now my oldest daughter is working for which is a joint venture between the Jonas Brothers and AOL. You can check out her interviews and online show. And to think it was all because of a hobby site started on DotNetNuke!

Well, now I'm back, and not just a community member, but employee of a great company. I'm really excited about my new role as a Sales Engineer here at DNN Corp. DotNetNuke has come a long way as not only an open source project, but as a great company. I'm really impressed with the transition of becoming a company, and still supporting and growing the huge community of folks who helped to get it where it is today.

Well, it's great to be back, and I'm looking forward to the journey ahead. Speaking of journey, help support our team for Movember. I'm going on vacation soon, doing a road trip on Route 66, so keep watching to see where my mustache goes, from Roswell, to the Grand Canyon, and Hollywood. I'll be sharing it all.

Great to be part of the community again, take care and Happy Thanksgiving!
