Happy New Year to Wingnuts everywhere! By now most time zones have reached 2010, and what an exciting milestone that is. By some counts, this puts the CIC into its third operating decade (the 1990s, the 2000s and now the 2010s). When the CIC staff started reporting Wing Commander news in the mid '90s, the 21st Century was far away and well out of mind. In 2001, we paid off the wcnews.com domain through 2010, which seemed unimaginably far off then, and now it's here!
Each year we continue to be impressed by the continued dedication of Wing Commander fans around the world. Every day some two thousand fans still visit the site, and hundreds of Wingnuts still actively participate in fan projects, forum discussions and more. You all provide the material that goes into our daily front page updates, and we are fast-approaching our 10,000th news post. Each one represents an hour or two of our time, but they often share dozens or hundreds of hours of yours.
It's this constant dedication that proves there is support for more Wing Commander products, and recent releases like Wing Commander 4 on the Playstation Network wouldn't happen if you weren't here. Thanks for all the creativity and time so many of you have donated in 2009, and we're looking forward to an even bigger and better 2010 and beyond!
