Three years ago today the AskDS site published its first post and had its first commenter . In the meantime we’ve created 455 articles and we’re now ranked 6th in all of TechNet’s blogs, behind AskPerf , Office2010 , MarkRussinovich , SBS , and HeyScriptingGuy . That’s a pretty amazing group to be lumped in with for traffic, I don’t mind saying. Especially Mark, he has incredible hair .

Without your visits we wouldn’t be here to celebrate another weirdly composed Office Clipart birthday.

Thanks everyone,
