I’m working on getting my technical blog back online. After crashing pretty hard, I’ve decided to try hosting the blog on my own using 1and1 rather then burden a good friend of mine any longer. Although I REALLY appreciate all Wade did to get me started blogging over two years ago, I just think now’s the time to forge my own way.
I must say though, in the two days I’ve been messing around, it’s been pretty cool!. I like having the ability to control 97% of it (1and1 has the final 3%). I can mess around with Silverlight, too, (check out my main home page) although 1and1 doesn’t serve XAP files (need to rename to ZIP, not a big deal). This blog is running version 2.3 of dasBlog to start out with, and getting it up and running in 1and1 wasn’t that hard, thanks to The Renegade Diaries post on how to configure it.
So, now I’m working on getting the content from my original blog over here so I can at least put back some of the posts that got some decent hits.
