Christmas Greetings From

Postby Paul Clerkin » Mon Dec 19, 2005 7:06 pm

I'd just like to take a moment to wish all readers a Happy Christmas and a prosperous 2006.

It's been a fabulous year for the site, bigger and busier than ever, now serving over 1.6 million pages per month.

New additions coming in early 2006, include: RSS feeds to compliment our existing email newsletters; new Irish sections on Fermoy, Youghal, Abbeyleix; an expanded Canadian section with Ottawa and Quebec city; extra German information on Munich and the smaller towns and villages of Bavaria; and much more.

Behind the scenes, I'm hoping to streamline the publishing process, so that our newsletters are even more timely, and that publishes more original news stories and reviews.

Also in the pipeline is one massive development, which you'll hear all about when the time is right. Suffice to say, this will impact the site in a huge way.

All the best.

Thanks Paul,

2006 should bring some interesting occurences no doubt. And the site is 10 years old come the new year, right?

Anyway, Happy Christmas to every reader, contributor and otherwise! Though eye-to-eye may not always be the phrase that encompasses all interaction on these forums they make for great learning and reading. The forums are a great source and has some greatly insightful and passionate contributors - and I would like to extended the warmest of wishes to you all.

Yup- happy christmas to all. Thanks for doing this, Paul, and thanks to everyone for rolling up their sleeves and getting stuck in.
Encountering like-minded posters is great, but it's often the disagreements which I value more. Keeps me on my toes and makes me question my assumptions- sometimes painful, always welcome.

Can't wait to hear what the 'massive development' is- free coffee?

Well done for keeping me occupied on my favourite subjects during time in three different companies! Now I feel old

It's the IÉ Effect Rory - get used to it :)

Yes it's been a good year for Archiseek, and with the Ireland forum I think it will be remembered as the year the board finally broke free from an overly Dublin-centric discourse - something that was probably inevitable when a site like this set up, when all that had gone before it in terms of public architectural comment had been almost exclusively Dublin-focused.

Looking forward to the 'Big Announcement', as well as the
villages of Bavaria
- oooh the excitment :D

Happy Christmas everyone.

When you mention RSS and stuff, reminded me of something here,

"It is not project management, partly because project management is the mainframe version of this. You could call it personal process or personal workflow management. The challenge is having a concept that can be effectively represented in software, cause it is some continuing activity that may or may not have a beginning and an end. It may be a budget cycle, it may be handling your kids college applications, who knows what."
