SOLDIERX Now Hosting Public Blogs For All Site Members

I have an important announcement to make regarding the SX Member Pages. They have been changed to Blogs as you can probably see by looking at the navigation panel to the left of this post. Aside from a name change, the major change is that we are now hosting blogs for all registered members of this site. It seemed like there should be more benefits to membership other than just forums and the increased amount of available content. We are in a testing phase so as long as everything works well (minimal abuse), the public blogs will stay.

Firewall/Server maintenance

Just an FYI....
We are currently working on a new firewall project and will be taking the website/server offline for a couple of hours tomorrow morning.
We will be down from 0830am CST Feb. 8th until 1130am the same day.
This should not affect anything other than the site being down for a little while and no data will be lost.
We really shouldn't require this length of time but are accounting for the unexpected.

We Need Content! New Operating System Tutorial on the Horizon

My biggest complaint with the new soldierx.com so far is the lack of a substantial amount of content. I see that there are new areas and I really dig the new framework, but I still see there is little content for people to read and learn from. I am going to be compiling information as rapidly as I can and adding it to this site in the tutorials section. My first tutorial will be over Operating Systems and will be a focus on Operating Systems from a computer science standpoint. It's not going to be a "how do I copy files" but more of an understanding of how operating systems work.

Bandwidth Upgrade

The bandwidth upgrade has been completed as of 2am this morning, I would personally like to thank RaT and Blake for all their help and efforts making this go as smoothly/fast as possible.
There were some issues in the begining but luckily we were able to overcome them fairly quickly.
I've waited almost a day to make this post because we wanted to ensure that we all got some sleep afterwards and that everything was up and running successfully without error.
I hope everyone is able to notice things working a little bit faster now.
I'm looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks.

January breaks unique visitor records on soldierx.com

Congratulations to everybody that has contributed to soldierx.com, this has been our largest month yet in terms of unique visitors. We have seen a large amount of growth since the launch of the new site. The more that people participate, the more that it makes members of SX want to contribute more content. I know that Amp is working on some tutorials, cisc0ninja is working on some tutorials, lloth is working on some projects, origin is working on content and I am working on a few projects. The new SX Labs is set to launch on 01-31-2009, so make sure to come to the site and check it out.

For whom the bell tolls....

After discussing the matter with RaT, as presidential adviser and a longtime contributor to SoldierX I am recommending at this point in time that the position of Vice President be dissolved. Over the last 9 years, this position has gained a substantial stigma relating to corruption and apathy in relation to those who have served in this position over the longest amount of time. With this in mind I feel that regardless of who steps into this position they will be ineffective at best as a result.
