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 through February 9th. 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 Member of the Week

This week’s featured member is Warner Schmidt, or as you may know him better, Schmidtw. He may be young, but his talents are many. He is employed both by his school (Milwaukee School of Engineering) and as a lead programmer at another company. He specializes in Windows systems and network troubleshooting, and has already earned nearly 8,000 Knowledge Points since he started on IT Knowledge Exchange this past July. Way to go, Warner! We’re proud to feature him as our member of the week.
