xaml:blog moving to msn spaces

April 29, 2006
I’m a Program Manager on Microsoft’s Windows Presentation Foundation (AKA "Avalon", WPF) and I primarily have been blogging about work.  I started back in October 2003 on longhornblogs.com/rrelyea when Avalon was first announced to the world at the PDC.
 
I do a variety of things on the Avalon team:

My blog site (longhornblogs.com/rrelyea) is experiencing an outage this morning [it is back up now], so I figured I’d give Spaces a try.  A few months ago I had attempted to get a blog going on my own domain but I ran into problems with the DB and I haven’t gotten back to it.

 

So far, I’m impressed by MSN Spaces…

One question: does it let me decide my URL for this post?  Don’t see that option…ouch.

    Since you work at Microsoft, don\’t you get access to blogs.msdn.com?

    Johann-
    Sure, I could use blogs.msdn.com, but I don\’t want to…
     
    Using MSN Spaces gives me exposure to what we are offering customers.
    I like a bunch of things so far that I\’m seeing here on spaces.
     
    I\’ve also have found a few features I\’d like added:
    * an ability to contribute to the url of the permalink for a post.  (I often find myself referring people to my old posts and have a nice URL sure helps.)

    * more ability to analyze stats.
     
    Looks like the Channel9 wiki with MsnSpaces requests does a good job of capturing the 2nd.  I\’ll add the 1st…
     
    I\’m intrigued by the book lists and ad hosting.  Gonna get rich soon?

    There are some more features I and much more other peoplea would like to see. The Statistics page is among the first ones we all want to see changed🙂
    While I can also support the Book module, I don\’t see much sense in the Music module. The same thing is with permissions on spacess. I can\’t neither set permissions I want, nor make it all available to public.
    … Don\’t you want to move to Spaces Team and to have a listener job function? I\’m jocking😉

    hey, nice new location.
    I need some advise about categorizing my mind on WinFX issues.
    I\’ve just started writing both on msn space and wordpress. I want to be heared too much I think😛
    Any way check my blog, and lets publish more.
