As you might be able to tell, my blog has had a rather radical transformation.   There's good news and there's bad news.

The good news - the change signals an upgrade to our blogging infrastructure which will have benefits for me such as fewer HTML/JavaScript hacks to get behavior I want, better search behavior, and a much better dashboard.   In turn, you should find that the RSS feed updates in a matter of minutes versus hours, nice breadcrumbs for navigation, and a more streamlined CAPTCHA experience for comments among other things.

The bad news - you're seeing it.  The default look and feel is, well, corporate MSDN.  That will change as I find some free cycles to modify the blog theme and add things back in like the User Group map, Community Megaphone, etc.   Unfortunately, free cycles are anything but free these days, so I ask that you bear with me while I try to pretty this thing up over the next week or so.

Rest assured, I'll post anything of huge urgency or relevance in the interim.
