CyberNet Happy Birthday It’s hard to believe it, but today is CyberNet’s 2nd birthday! Two years ago Ryan started this blog as a hobby, a place where he could “bookmark” things he came across on the Internet. He still reminds me of how I laughed when he told me what he had started, mainly because he’s always hated writing. Little did he or I know that we’d both be maintaining CyberNet on a full-time basis just two years later. It’s been both fun and challenging over the last two years, but all of the time and effort that has been put into the site has been worth it!

Before we get into explaining our Birthday Bash Giveaway Extravaganza, we’d like to first take the time to thank all of you and share an overview of our statistics! We have an awesome community and have met a lot of great people. Whether you contribute by commenting, submitting tips, or simply reading what we write, THANK YOU! Next, here’s a quick look at our statistics for those of you that are interested. After two years, we have:

  • Over 3,100 registered users
  • Over 4,300 posts
  • Over 22,000 comments

  • Over 300,000 pageviews per month

To help celebrate, we’ve put together a Giveaway Extravaganza composed of dozens of licenses for software and services that you’ll love totaling over $1,000! Today’s articles are going to consist of explaining the software and services for our giveaways (we’re skipping out on the news today!) so you’ll want to check back throughout the day.
