Website Redesign – FINALLY…

I have put this off far too long and, of course, with every passing year my previous website design grew increasingly unsatisfactory. The old site used Protopage to wrap a blogger blog that was started before it was purchased by Google. I think Protopage is a very cool "start page" service, but I would prefer it for private use and not public publishing.

For one thing, the old approach offered very little Search Engine Optimization capability.

I have many posts in mind but had put off updating the old site for these reasons. I hope to catch up shortly and share lots...

Please let me know if you have any feedback on the new site or experience any problems viewing it.

Web Hosting

I just completed moving many of my sites to DreamHost. The hosting provider I have been using for the last 6 years is still offering the same features they did then. I now have many more toys to play with and look forward to leveraging them. One limitation, if you view it as such, is that they host on Linux only and do not support ASP / ASP.Net / MS SQL.

The process was fairly painless and AFAICT I had no downtime. If you need some help arranging or moving your hosting please let me know.

You can save $25.00 with DreamHost by providing the promo code MikeBD.
