Friday thanks to my sponsors

Posted by on March 22, 2013 in Featured | 0 comments

I wanted to say thanks to UniTrends and Altaro for being early sponsors on this blog. The idea of sponsors that can buy ads here is a new thing for me. I am looking to continue to work with sponsors that will help me in further improving this blog and using the revenue to build out my home lab that is used heavily when doing tests and writing the content here.
