It’s hard to publish content on Microsoft.com – rules, tools, and politics.

 

So when I started the Digital Blackbelt Series I set up a shared hosting account and paid for it out of pocket. $45 per month. Multiple domains, MSSQL databases, hosting tools, plenty of band width usage, etc.

 

I set up several sites, but mainly I set up www.DigitalBlackBelt.com – a classic ASP site running the SOOP Portal with an MS-SQL backend.

 

I did the first session in the series – about 500 listeners visited the site and brought it to it’s knees.

 

I’ve had problems ever since.

 

Last year on the way to TechEd, my plane got diverted to Las Vegas due to fires in Southern California. At the airport I met Chris Morrow from MaximumASP.com

 

Well, to make a long story short – the guys at MaximumASP have stepped up to work with me to get moved over to one of their servers. The server is on line and I’m getting ready to move.

 

IT’S FAST – not a little fast – IT’S REALLY FAST  !

 

When I remote desktop into the machine – it easy to forget that I’m remote !  Awesome!

 

This will let me do some very interesting things this spring !

 

Thanks MaximumASP !!!
