Final results for blogging app

WordPress has emerged as a winner, but not without reservation. Since I make my living working on Windows and Visual Studio, I really wanted to go with a .NET solution on a Windows host. Also, I have read in more than one place that WordPress melts down when slashdotted or other viral content directs at your website. I am not really fond of PHP based sites, since I have needed to clean up after hacks on the Nuke sites.

It turns out that Windows based WordPress hosting is the worst of both worlds. GoDaddy does not say this in their support and hosting plans, but WordPress is unusable on a shared windows hosting plan, even a deluxe plan. They have WordPress hosting , which is really one of their Linux hosting plans marketed specifically at bloggers. The GoDaddy support person said it would be a “night and day difference.” He is correct. I actually can post and view posts. I might be able to make some money with this too.

MVC4 update

It seems like MVC4 does not just go by itself. It needs NUGET, and the rewrite module to get all right with the world.

Posting using the windows phone app over LTE

With my current hosting plan, the XML rpc is slow to respond. So my posts make it even though my phone client times out. It is going to take a lot of patience to make this work.

Moving to MVC4

Getting Visual Studio 2010 Service pack 1 installed on a Windows 2003 build server was a sore trial. It turns out there is a hotfix necessary to allow the install to complete.

When you attempt to install a large .msi package or .msp package on Windows Server 2003, you receive:

Error 1718. File <FileName> was rejected by digital signature policy.

This behavior occurs if the server has insufficient contiguous memory to verify that the package is correctly signed.

DasBlog and WordPress showdown

I have been in the process of evaluating a blogging tool. WordPress has a very handy free app for Windows Phone and iPhone for blogging. The DasBlog software does not seem to have an equivalent native app.

Shared hosting learning experience

This current shared hosting vendor has a great deal for this domain and hosting, but the performance is weak for a Windows server IIS shared host running PHP and mySQL. Part of the secret I am told is to turn off plugins. Also to get the W3 cache plug in. I have enabled these now and will watch how it goes.

It is nice that this blog can be posted with iPhone and Windows phone apps.

Home repairs in the 21st century

A bathroom vanity sink has a leaking faucet and needs a new cartridge. I looked at two large time repair retailers and did not find the one I needed. Fortunately, one had a book with color pictures. So I ordered the parts on line through my Windows phone.

First post from iPhone

I also installed the WordPress app on my iPhone. The layout is slightly better. But, I prefer the larger HTC Titan screen. I wish the iPhone keyboard showed the current typing case like the Android and Windows phones do.

Second post from Windows Phone

I might have the phone posting all figured out. This is the way to go, since I always have my phone with me.

First blog post from the Windows Phone

This is a blog post using the Windows Phone. I have an HTC Titan that I have upgraded to Windows Phone 7.8. It still works pretty after a year and a half.

The only problem is how to submit. It appears one must use the back arrow <== to return up one menu.
