Kevin Remde's IT Pro WebLog

12 Years being Full of I.T.

That’s right!  This blog is 12 years old today!  Yep.  12 years ago today I entered my very first blog post.  And in the years that followed, it was a pleasure to bring the latest-news, technical resources, and sometimes just silly tech stuff to your browser of choice.
