  • Thanking vBulletin, for how it has helped me help others

    Over the past 4 years i have been running a Technical Support site, as well as working for Microsoft online, as many of you already know.

    In 2001, i decided to use bulletin board software to answer technical questions, rather than just let people email me for technical support, as it was extremely hard to know who actually qualified for support, and who did not.

    I started off using UBB for a number of months, this was back when php was version 3 (php3), i found it just as server intensive as cgi.
    Shortly after that, with newer version of vbulletin, came the release of php version 4, and was alot less server intensive, along with that where the very high number of features that vB had which UBB did not, so i decided to switch.

    Over the past 2 years of using vBulletin, it has been nothing short of what it is advertised as "Powerful, Fast, Easy to use, Easy to backup, Easy to restore.

    Without vBulletin i wouldnt be able to help out the number of end users and professionals i do today.

    Also without the help of vBulletin, i am not sure i would be one of the few people who where awarded and added to the list of Microsoft MVP's
    (Most Valuable Professional) for Microsoft Server Support and Microsoft Technical Support.

    I knew i was receiving this award last week, but Officially did receive the award until this morning.

    Again a great thank you too all the vBulletin team, it's moderators, Administrators and Developers, Scott and Jake have been a huge help with my site, they're just to modest too take any credit..




    Thank You
