Happy birthday to the Clu-blog

Happy birthday candles
Grab your bagpipes, join the marching band, festoon your balustrades with bunting… because this blog is one year old today! Huzzah!

Although the Clu-blog wasn’t unleashed on the great unwashed public until some time in July 2008, it began internally inside Sophos exactly a year ago. You can view the first ever post, which pontificates funnily enough about it also being the birthday of the first ever Trojan horse (but not in a computer security sense).

Since then, the blog has grown leaps-and-bounds and I hope you’ve enjoyed it and occasionally found it useful too.

All that remains is for me to thank you and the occasional guest contributors for all the support.
