Celebrating 15 Years Online - Cygnus-X1.Net

Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the Cygnus-X1.Net website. It’s hard to believe how quickly 15 years have shot by, and harder still to believe how this website has grown and expanded – well beyond anything I could have hoped for when I launched it on a warm summer day back in June of 2004.

But here we are – 15 years later. 15 Years of bringing you the very best and latest information on Rush. 15 Years of making countless friends who reached out to share their own Rush stories with me. And while it hasn’t always been a smooth ride, it certainly has been a fulfilling one.

Very special thanks to graphic designer Carl McDonnell who has provided most of the imagery you see on the site over the years, including the gorgeous new 15th Anniversary Banner. Thanks, Carl!

So here’s to 15 years and, more importantly, here’s to all of you who helped to make my little corner of the internet a modest success.

On to the next XV!
