AfterDawn congratulates Dela on his 10 years of service

AfterDawn congratulates Dela on his 10 years of service Today marks as a milestone for both AfterDawn, and our Irish senior staff member, James "Dela" Delahunty. He was the first hired employee of AfterDawn back in August 2004 when our site was slowly evolving from a hobby to a business.
Dela has been, and still is, an integral part of our team of tech journalists and has published several thousand news articles on our site through the past 10 years. His articles and guides have been read by millions and millions of people over the years.

I personally consider him, not just a colleague, but also my friend. A friend that I have never met in person, but who has been a part of the daily life of the entire AfterDawn team for more than a decade at first, as an active forum member and later, for the past 10 years, as a valuable member of our team.

If the next ten years turn out to be anything like the last, we will all be very happy indeed!

Thank you, mate!

On behalf of Team AfterDawn,

Petteri Pyyny, CEO
AfterDawn Oy



P.S. Here's a link to James' first-ever news article published on our site:

Thanks a lot buddy :-)

Ye, it is kind of odd we haven't met yet, though I don't think you've met anyone who worked on this team (english) yet?

God, I just read over that first news item and I can remember writing it clear as day. It looks kind of odd without the V3 layout around it, giant paragraphs and not particularly well written ;-) I guess that's how a 17 year old writes ;-)

Thanks for the acknowledgment buddy!

I know, Petteri sent me a link tracking a package with an origin of Finland.

I'm so happy that you have decided to send me your car, Jari, I will cherish it always!!

Thanks for everything you have done for the site, and glad to see that you are still around after all this time.

I miss the old AD IRC channel, it just seemed to fade away, but always enjoyed talking with you there.

Hey bud, long time!

Ye I miss that old IRC channel, was a fun place to hang out but I think work and life and everything depleted the place. But it was definitely a good spot to hang out on for a long time! :-)

Btw, thanks Mysttic & GryphB!
