Craig Gibbons' Lifeblog lifeblog://

17Feb/050 is about to get a face lift

3 months ago I started this blog after looking around for quite some time to find a suitable blogging application. I wanted something good, free and customizable. After quite a bit of shopping around and time wastage investigating red-herrings which were no longer, supported, developed or even used, I finally came across what I would consider to be the de facto .NET blog application, known as .Text (dot text). The project was originally started by a guy named Scott Watermasysk who devoted 2 years of his life and love to building .Text into what you see here on this site. At some point a company called Telligent Systems was started by a guy named Rob Howard and they quickly went about procuring the services of Scott Water and another guy named Jason Alexander, creator of nGallery. Telligent took the Microsoft sample application, ASP.NET Forums, .Text and nGallery and rolled these immensely popular applications into a single application called CommunityServer and as I write this I buzz with excitement because version 1.0 is expected to be released tomorrow. will be upgrading to this new version of CommunityServer as soon as a migration tool becomes available, after all I really don't want to be repopulating a database all night! CommunityServer is free for non-commercial use. More information can be found on the Telligent Systems website.
