31 Dec, 2004

Year 2004 has been a successful and challenging year for SillyDog701. I would like to thank all our moderators, members, users. Without your support we wouldn't have today's achievement.

A quick review about Year 2004: SillyDog701 upgraded from a shared server to a dedicated server. This change improved server response dramatically to all users, as well as provided a good system resource for us standing under multiple server attacks from time to time.

We released Netscape, Mozilla and SillyDog701, the relationship. This article provides a quick guide, and a historical perspective about story of Netscape and the relationship with Mozilla, and how SillyDog701 is involved. This article is also mentioned by C|net's special edition for 10 years of Netscape.

We launched MozInfo701 last year, a Mozilla resource and information centre for rest of us. We expanded it with our very unique Switch Guide, a real step-by-step on telling users to switch to Gecko based browsers.

Netscape Browser Archive is still our main focus. However, we've increased our coverage on other Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Mozilla. The discussions of August release of Netscape 7.2 and the upcoming Netscape Browser to be based on Firefox (Netscape Prototype) both indicated SillyDog701's role in the Netscape Community. SillyDog701 is proud to have such honour to serve all Netscape users. We will continue to work hard on this.

We don't self-claim we are the number 1 independent support site or the oldest peer supporting site around. We strive to provide the best technical support possible, and the friendliest community we can. In this year's traffic report, we have a huge increase compared to 2003. Not surprisingly, we don't need to ban 150+ IPs to achieve this. In fact, we don't ban anyone from viewing our content.

I would like to thank all SillyDog701 members for your support over the past year. You've done a good job with helping SillyDog701 improve. I would also like to thank SillyDog701 Moderators, MozInfo701 editors, and, especially, the Switch Champion Team: without your help, SillyDog701 won't have today's achievement.

SillyDog701 has come very far in the past year. Once again, I'd like to thank everyone that made this possible. SillyDog701 strives to provide all our members the best technical support and the friendliest community we can. We always listen to your opinions, if you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate on telling us know. You can also help us financially by simply buying legal music through our iTunes links, we would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great New Year.

Antony Shen.
