This is my first post on a refreshed blog. I have had a break – from December to March I was traveling about 75% of the time – first event in Estonia, Christmas, then 1 month vacation in Thailand with backpacks, then a few weeks of work and MVP Summit in Seattle (and a great Summit it was). I had no time to blog. This traveling also caused me a longer backlog of work, and even though I still have plenty to do at work, I cant keep myself away from sharing and writing anymore. I have my desktops on laptop, work computer and virtual machines full of different blog post ideas.
With this refresh, i have also upgraded the blog engine from BlogEngine.NET v1.6.1 to BlogEngine v2.5 (a huge improvement – used to have thousands of spam comments and caching that ate up gigabytes of memory). This one feels very stable, administration has improved a lot and themes are nice (there’s a gallery for installing them).
I have also split the blog into two – one Estonian (on http://melborp.ee) and this one from now in English. The reason being – I have always wanted to additionally write in English and a few times I tried to get a blog account on the MVP blog site, however for some reason I never succeeded. Anyhow, I have finally did it and created it my own hosting.
This feels good, I am looking forward to many new blog posts to share my technology adventures on both this and the Estonian site.
