Welcome to my new blog. I had
but it sank into disuse several months ago.
I've been attempting to get
up on my laptop, before moving it to my website,
but I've run into all sorts of
I've given up on dasBlog for now, as I'm off on vacation.
Instead I decided to take advantage of my status as
a former Microsoft employee who worked on the
IIS dev team for seven years, and get a blog hosted
here on weblogs.asp.net.
Thanks to Scott Watermasysk for setting it up for me.
I had some difficulty in getting
w.bloggar to post here.
Scott's w.bloggar configuration instructions,
which got me started, but was missing some details,
so I couldn't post successfully.
I figured out how to fill out the Custom tab
on the Accounts properties, then found
Scott's Desktop Blogging Article,
which confirmed my findings.
I could now post, but my test posts were not showing up in the front page
of this blog; only in the admin interface.
If I used the Advanced Options to set the Published flag,
they appeared on the front page.
Some email to Scott elicited the fact that I needed to use the
Post & Publish button, not the Post button
that I was used to from EraBlog.
