Well, this feels strangely familiar. It has been a while, since I’ve last written something. Maybe some of you have read my “notorious” adventures with C++ and OpenGL. I have not yet sorted out whether or not I should leave the old posts (as they are in Dutch), but for the moment, I’ll leave them to be read. But for those of you new here, welcome on my blog.
So, I’m starting all over again. But what is different, you may ask? First thing you may notice is that the blog sports a new design. Bye bye Blix, hello Blogari. And this time, it’s a custom made design, specifically made for this blog. It was kinda hard finding the right one, but I think this design will do just fine for now. I’m still not 100% satisfied with the color scheme, though. Then again, I never am with the designs I make, so let’s just see how this one comes along.
The blog uses the new WordPress engine. (2.3 for those keeping stats) It has a new tagging framework – including a nifty tag cloud – and an update notifcation system for its plugins. So it’s a pretty decent update, I think. I’ve looked into the possibility of using another cms for this blog. Tried some more exotic software such as Joomla and Drupal, but in the end, I just stuck with good old WordPress, as it is great in what is does, namely blogging!
Talking about CMS, it’s a nice intro for the stuff I’ll be blogging about. It’s been more than a year since I graduated at KULeuven. And I found a nice little job at Dolmen, a Belgian IT service provider. A consultancy firm, if you like. And for almost a year now, I’ve been developing SharePoint solutions for all kinds of customers. (WSS 3.0 as well as MOSS 2007) So this is what this blog will be mainly about, sharing my new adventures with SharePoint and analyzing technical issues I come accross. As you may have guessed SharePoint will not be the only subject on this blog, although most ramblings will still involve computer technology.
As a final note, to celebrate this new beginning, I am preparing a series of blogposts covering some issues when designing layouts for SharePoint. Those will be posted as soon as possible.
PS: We are in the middle of a server upgrade (talking about good timing… :p) Yesterday I updated the version on the new server. But there were some technical difficulties. So we reverted back to the old server. So if you post a comment, it’ll likely be gone tomorrow. Just bare with me.
PS 2: You are now reading the new server
