3phase blog is 2years old

Once again 3phase blog gets the privilege of celebrating our second anniversary. Getting to this point cannot be taken for granted. It has been 2 years of talking about electricity, environment and wind energy.

Since I started this blog, 2 years ago, I have taught and at the same time learnt alot and I feel like a professor in these disciplines though am still learning.

To all those who have taken the time of contributing by comments and questions, am much indebted. Thanks you all and lets make 2012 another successful engineering year.
