I've had a web site for years now starting with a self-hosted (yes, I had my own web servers at home) Microsoft FrontPage website. Through the years I've used them for many things such as sharing vacations pictures, my library, wine, motorcycles, and technology. What I've realized now is that a blog meets many of those needs. The only need for my personal site that are not met by that is my wine inventory and my library.
So with this version I am learning to use Microsoft's ASP.NET MVC (Model-View-Controller) 2 web capabilities. I've been impressed with it for quite some time but realized that my timeframe was such that I should wait until the release of Visual Studio 2010 and MVC 3.
So going forward, there really won't be much on this site other than books and wines. The rest will be on my blog site.
