Ask a Question, Win a T-Shirt

We’re rewarding great questions on IT Knowledge Exchange by giving away ten t-shirts to good questions asked in the community over the next 30 days. All you have to do is submit a well-thought-out, well-written (and hopefully well-tagged) question to the IT Knowledge Exchange community, and we’ll choose our favorites in time to announce in our newsletter on Tuesday, February 10th.

You can view the blog post here with more information.

Featured Community Member

This week’s featured community member is Gilly400. If you have ever asked a question relating to AS/400, you’re probably familiar with Martin Gilbert. Though he initially signed up with IT Knowledge Exchange in 2006 (when it looked quite different), oddly enough, he became very active on the site exactly one year ago this week. This month, he has already earned 720 Knowledge Points. We’re happy to have him!
