AfterDawn: Tech news

AfterDawn's 14th birthday

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 10 Jun 2013 15:22 User comments (26)

AfterDawn's 14th birthday Yet another year has passed. Hobby-project-gone-mad has evolved to a company with 20+ employees, online presence in four different language areas.
Upcoming year - our 15th - will bring updated, modernized site layout, responsive design and bunch of other improvements to all of our global sites. And yes, forums will get major improvements during the next 12 months, too.

As always, on our birthday, I want to thank all of our employees, moderators and users for all these years. Great times -- and I expect more great years to follow. Thank you, without you guys, this site wouldn't exist.

P.S. For the "this gets asked every year" question: here's the oldest screenshot of our site that we know of, from Summer of 1999:

Love me some Afterdawn!
I discovered AD back in the day when I was learning how to rip my own DVDs.
I've always loved the community. AD is more laid back than most tech communities and I enjoy that.
I hope you guys keep up the good work!

Thanks!

Too many news in little lapse of time caused me to miss this important article when it got published. But, late as I know I am, I'm forced to wish you the happiest birthday anyway!

Member since 2-12-2008. Though it seems like much longer, since I've been aware of the site since roughly 2004. Glad to see Afterdawn still kicking!
Happy B-day Afterdawn, and I wish all involved with the wellness of the site a wonderful day ;)
