10 year anniversary
A few years later Dennis started working at a company which hosted a lot of servers for their own product and BloggingAbout.NET got its first real hardware there. It moved several times from a 19″ rack into the company’s own suite at WeDare. Somewhere in 2012 the server was moved to SmartDC, of which i3D is part of, which on its own is hosting all the European servers for Electronic Arts.
Not even two years later the move was made to Windows Azure, running a single, dedicated virtual machine running Windows Server 2013. At the same time we were still running Community Server 2008, a severely old system, due to the fact that since long, Telligent abandoned the support for free .NET Community licenses. After having plans for almost two years now, the move was finally made to WordPress after quite some free time was spend on writing a converter tool by Dennis from Community Server to WordPress.
