Welcome to Georged Funnelweb

Good Morning

After two years hiatus, I’m blogging again. Not that I’ve been doing nothing at all, having invested endless hours into CRM Wiki and witnessing the birth of CRM Field Guide. But it’s good to be back. 

To celebrate this occasion, I’m changing the delivery van from BlogEngine.NET to a mighty FunnelWeb.  Why, you may ask? I simply felt like a change and could not pass something described as “built by developers for developers” or “the blog engine of real developers”. I did briefly contemplate a no-brainer but then noticed the general migration pattern even if you ask explicitly to move from FunnelWeb to WordPress. So why the FunnelWeb? In addition to all the reasons others have listed, how about:

  • Awesome code base. I accept that I will never be able to get my head around some of the concepts used but it does not stop me from admiring the results, similar to lifting the bonnet on my car and drooling. Though I am adding a washer fluid when required.
  • Continuing on the codebase – I wanted to see how to create something with MVC 4 and beyond. Perfect vehicle for that.
  • UI. Wanted one since joining Stack Overflow a very long time ago.
  • Know Paul Stovell.
  • Respect for the animal.

The Move

  • Clone the codebase, compile, deploy (being a Microsoft Partner with Silver Hosting Competency, we have our own sandpit)
  • Copy BlogEngine folders with static files across
  • Export content from BlogEngine.NET, search and adjust links for static content using Notepad2
  • Add Google Analytics
  • Add redirects using URL Rewrite: remove aspx extension, fix syndication feed, canonise hostname
  • Register with Disqus, trying to export/import comments, giving up for now, deal with it later. And built-in comments engine is beautiful.
  • Since I was away, Feedburner has been acquired by Google. Not to worry, I claim my feed and be done, right? Enter details, Next. Kaboom, 404 Not Found.What? Two years too late. Arghhh. Back to work, recreate the feed, still need to fix links on my blog.

So you have it, theme aside (I will attend to it at some point), we are back at ground zero.

There is one important change: blog URL no longer has CRM as part of it. That does not mean that I’m no longer interested in CRM, on the contrary. What it means is that I’m going to add to the mix my [sometimes quite funny] remarks on all the things around. If you don’t like it, just filter by tags but you never know what you’re going to miss out on!

Welcome back and enjoy the reading.

Installing a solar energy system is a great way to save money on your energy requirements and invest in a renewable energy source. For this reason, an increasing number of people are installing solar panels in their homes. Solar panels are constructed using photovoltaic cells, which store the renewable energy from sunlight. writing sop
