Happy 10th Birthday: The Focus

image_thumb1Don’t you hate it when you miss someone’s birthday?  I was looking up an old article in the Focus and noticed that the first issue was published on January, 13th, 2002. 

Happy Belated Birthday!

It was sometime in 2001 that Rod Scholl pointed out that there was no good ANSYS newsletter out there.  People would do one or two issues then get busy and never put out any more, or only publish once in a while.  So we decided that we would not only do a newsletter, but that we would keep it up and publish  on a regular basis. The first issue came out as an HTML email on January 13th of 2002.

The First Issue of The Focus

And Rod was instrumental in keeping us on track and making sure that with it. Since then we published 74 actual newsletters before switching to a blog format in 2010.  Just before this one goes up on the blog, we will have published 59 The Focus articles.

Thank you to everyone who subscribes to The Focus and reads our postings, rates us, and sends us such great comments and questions.  

Here is to 10 more years!
