New blogging server and engine…

So this is officially my first post on the live version of the Wordpress based blog-server. Lots of really cool new toys and features to play with. I’ll miss some things like customizations and personal themes, but I’m promised that it’s coming. No longer will I have to upload an image to my homepages.borland.com account and then reference them from my blog. This one allows me to upload attachments and images then inject the link. It even does thumbnailing for me.

OK, OK… so this stuff is expected these days for a blog engine… but after using, ancient by today’s internet time, .Text, this is a welcome relief. Of course all of this won’t make me any better of a blogger… I’ll still suck as bad as I ever did as far as content and topics. :-) Oh and I just noticed.. the builtin post editor autosaves after a timeout… This sounds like an interesting IDE feature…

    Because now the blog is Wordpress based, you may try Windows Live Writer to write posts.

    NAH, the Main Aggregation feed on Delphi Welcome Page can not get updated any more !! will you release an Update 4 to fix this ???

    And, your page layout looks broken in a narrow window like Welcome Page

    Allan!

    Please tweak size and colors of fonts on your blog. They are in no way eye-friendly.
    Also, in comments section, there is no useful distinction between poster & timestamp of the post, and the content itself. Bolding the headers may be a gread readability move :) Thanks!

    And congrats!
