Moving…

I/We are officially moving. We’re moving houses as well, but I was talking about my blog.  It has been hosted with Newtek (formerly Crystaltech, http://thesba.com/) and running on BlogEngine.NET (http://dotnetblogengine.net/) for years and it seems like I spent more time updating it then posting.  I know that’s mostly my fault since I enjoy the technical side […]

My website

I wish I knew more about formatting my blog.  I’ve seen other people’s blogs so I know it’s possible, but I want to clean up my webpage and make my blog part of the home page, then insert a feed on the side with twitter updates and any other updates for my other stuff.  In […]
