Happy New Year 2012 — From Geek and the Dolls

by Ramesh Natarajan on January 1, 2012

Happy New Year from Me and My Daughters (Diya and Neha)

Happy New Year to all TGS readers. We wish you and your family a happy and prosperous new year.

Last year was an awesome year for me personally. We had our 2nd daughter. Both our daughters (Diya and Neha) bring so much joy and happiness every day in our family, I feel truely blessed.

With your tremendous support and love, last year was the best year for the blog. Currently we have over 50,000+ subscribers. We produced lot of high quality tutorials last year. I also published two books last year–Bash 101 Hacks, Sed and Awk 101 Hacks.

I’m very excited for 2012, and extremely committed in producing several high quality tutorials that will educate you on Linux and Open Source Technologies.

I appreciate all the support given by the regular readers of the blog. I’m very grateful to have you as part of the TGS blog.
