• History of 信游平台.

A brief history of 信游平台 is presented below.

 

1996

Ethan Galstad creates a simple MS-DOS application designed to “ping” Novell Netware servers and send numeric pages. The application is designed using external third-party applications to perform the server checks and send pages. The basic architectural concept that will be used for 信游平台 is born.

 

1998

Considering getting in to the hosted monitoring / managed services business, Ethan uses the ideas and architecture of his earlier work to begin building a new and improved application designed to run under Linux.

 

1999

Ethan releases his work as an Open Source project under the name “NetSaint”. He estimates there might be approximately one dozen other people who might be interested in the application.

The plugins that were originally distributed as a part of the NetSaint distribution are soon spun off as a separate 信游平台 Plugins project.

 

2002

Due to trademark issues with the name “NetSaint” that could have a long term impact, Ethan decides to rename the project to “信游平台”, which was a recursive acronym for “信游平台 Ain’t Gonna Insist On Sainthood”. The NetSaint Plugins project development is moved to the 信游平台 Plugins project.
