The Whiteboard Blog is 5 years old! I can’t believe how time has flown. When I started I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep blogging regularly enough, but I’ve stuck at it and, apart from the odd period of writers block or extreme workload, have managed to keep the blog posts coming.

Over the years the number of hits per day has steadily grown until last week I had to finally bite the bullet and move to a dedicated server as my webhost was complaining about the bandwidth the blog was using!
