As the saying goes; “It is hard to learn an old dog new tricks”, but…  Even though I am a really old dog, I hope I’ll be able to learn a bit about “social networking”, and therefore I created an account on Twitter a couple of days ago. Hopefully I’l be able to be more active on Twitter than what I’ve been here at the blog :). Well, that should not be too hard, seeing how infrequent I post here.

Anyway, my twitter account is @nielsberglund, so if you are interested you know where to go.

Blog Client

August 22, 2006

One of my “favorite” pastimes, during my blogging periods was to test out various blog clients. Seeing that I am now back in blogging and have changed the blog back-end, I obviously have to test a new client.

From a very basic search on the ‘net it seems that the favorite blog client for Mac’s is ecto, so this is now the first post to my new blog using the ecto client. So far so good, it looks like I can insert links (if the links to ecto in the previous sentences works).

What I haven’t figured out yet, is if I can use this client in offline mode? I guess I’ll find out sooner or later.

Just as a matter of interest; if you guys (and girls) can comment on what is the preferred blog client out there?

Rebooting the Blog

August 21, 2006

I’ve been blogging on and off (mosly off) for a couple of years now, and blogging has been trying to quit smoking – but the opposite: you keep it up (blogging) for a while but then you fall back into the old habits (not blogging).

I have decided to give it a final go; I’ll try to blog with some frequency, if I can not do that for a sustained period I have told myself to give it up totally. In conjunction with trying to get back to blogging I have also decided to move from a blog hosted on my staff web site at DevelopMentor to a hosted blog.

In this blog I’ll cover (as before) topics regarding databases (SQL Server in general), data access technologies (ADO.NET, LINQ etc). As I have recently switched to Mac and OSX I may also write about the experiences switching to Mac after having been a Windows user for a looooooong time.

I’ll try and do a re-direction of the feed from my DM blog to the feed here, but I can not guarantee that I will succeed in doing that.
