From old to new

Well, the cut-over was fairly painless. Especially from the Blogger side. My pain was self inflicted because I had some custom URL redirect logic in the old site and when I tested it with its new domain it kept redirecting me back to the old URL. Once I remembered, I shut off that feature and all seems fine.

So, if anyone is looking for the old site, in its full DNN glory, it can be found at

Cutting over to blogger

In the summer of 2005, I started a bit of a personal adventure. I quit my job and with two friends started our own Internet business. Around that time, I started a blog with every intention of tracking the technical ups-and-downs of our efforts. Like 90% of blogging efforts, it soon petered out.

One of the challenges I created for myself was that I was managing my own blog site. I had been exploring the DotNetNuke (DNN) web framework, so I set up my own DNN site with a Blog module to explore DNN and to blog. That experimental site wasn't our core business site, so it became a bit of an administrative burden to maintain it.

Now I figure I'll let Google worry about the administrative burden while I try to attempt active blogging one more time.

Happy 2009
