    A few months ago I wrote a blog titled Using FrontPage 2003 to Bulk Rename Images Using VBA , in which I shared a VBA macro that renamed all of the images in a website to a common file-naming syntax. In that blog I explained my reasoning behind my use of the long-outdated FrontPage 2003, and that reason...

    Despite the plethora of other tools and editors that I use to create websites, there are times when I simply have to dust off my copy of (gasp!) Microsoft FrontPage 2003.

  • Blog Post: FPSE and Form Results over Email (SMTP)

  • Blog Post: Migrating FPSE Roles Between Servers

    I ran into one of those strange situations the other day where you feel like you've been doing the same thing on your computer at some time in the distant past - kind of like déjà vu for geeks.
