Up and running.

Woo hoo! The blog seem to be up and running with my custom domain name. Some poking around in the Google documentation and one quick support call to Easy DNS where they told me that an Alias on their configuration page generates a CNAME record and I have a working blog. Much kudos to both services that it doesn't require a Ph.D. in Physics to get this up and running.

I thought about installing Blog software on my Gate server, but so far the Google service is looking reasonably good and is without question less effort to maintain. And, of course, the price is right. We'll see how well it works out. I always have the option of moving if I find a good reason to.

Now that that is taken care of, a big hello to anyone out there reading this. This Blog is part of the web presence of my proto photography business, Liquid Air Photography. My main home page, hosted by Gate is still very much under construction. My gallery pages, hosted by Smugmug are in better shape but still being refined. This is still a hobby for me so all work on my web presence has to fit in the cracks of my life. None-the-less I have been happy that progress has been fairly steady, albeit slow.
