Changed to Open Live Writer

Headline: I’ve finally moved from Windows Live Writer to Open Live Writer Why the change? I’ve been working to finally modernize my blog which has been part of the reason I’ve not posted much.

For example, one logic tier but present via WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) (both 32 and 64 bit), ASP.NET, MVC (Model-View-Controller), Silverlight, and Windows 7 phone? And, can I use the MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) pattern […]

Upgraded to WordPress 2.8

Blog – Web Log?

Blog – most people will tell you it means, “Web Log”… I think it means “WE Begin to Lose Our Genius” (assuming we ever had any), so we resort to writing everything down. Not because we particularly think it will be interesting reading for others. But instead, as a means of remembering things. “What was […]
