Welcome to the New Site!

If you're reading this, it means I haven't totally boned the conversion over to BlogEngine from CommunityServer.  It's been a long time coming, but I finally had the time to convert everything to the new system and put it live today.

I would appreciate any and all feedback, especially for broken links or things that just aren't working the way they should be.  I'll be tweaking things a bit more, but it's now live!

The one thing you'll find missing is the Forums section from the old site.  It didn't get much use and I figured it was time to let it go.  I don't plan to have a replacement at the moment.

Enjoy the new site!

Site Upgrade and New Theme!

After finally finding a Community Server 2008.5 SP1 compatible theme I liked, I was able to upgrade my site to the latest Community Server version.  This theme is provided by Andrew Belon, who has several fantastic CS themes available on his site.  I’ve tweaked his basic Bliss theme (which he uses as his main theme) to my liking.

I’m a big fan of the new colors and layout, and I hope those reading this are as well.  I’ll continue to tweak over the coming days to make things a bit cleaner.

If you have any comments on the new site or you see anything out of place, please contact me and let me know…thanks!
