Always watch the official Sitefinity website for the latest info. As part of the migration of my website from Sitefinity 3, I updated both the Url format for […]

I am excited beyond words at this new opportunity, and I can’t wait to dedicate myself […]
Things continue to be busy, but I’m doing my best to make time for this site and my various projects. At long last I FINALLY installed Disqus to manage comments for the blog and software posts Best of all, after a few frustratingly productive hours of hacking the Disqus API, I managed to import all […]
