I have spent a decent amount of time over the years, trying to convince myself to spend some time on my blog. I have updated the OS of the VM that runs it. I have migrated from whatever platform I started on (I think I had two different ones going at one point.) I have… Continue reading Revisiting my Blog
So the other day I said that I was moving this blog to Azure. I have tinkered with that, and am actually making a little progress. (This happens when you put little effort/time into something).

I have occasionally had trouble… Continue reading Windows Live Writer fails to open
