Geeks With Blogs

Jeff Julian's Blog CEO of Enterprise Marketer
Geekswithblogs Guild on Duskwood is almost formed!

We just need a few more signatures on the charter and we will have the guild ready to go.  A few Microsoft people are joining as well, this is what helped us get over the hump.  If you want to join, I will be online tonight after 7pm CST and whisper me with your location and we will find a place to get your signature.


[Update: My characters name on Duskwood is Darthnode]

Hi, my name is Jeff and I am addicted to News Radio
A year ago, if you told me I would listen to only News Radio from 5am to 5pm, I would tell you that you are smoking crack. I couldn't comprehend how in the 00's, people would still listen to AM radio. Well then I started listening to the Dave Ramsey Show on XM because on a project with 5 people in one room, it is hard to compromise on music, so it worked. Well early this year, John insisted we listen to Laura Ingraham, who I personally don't like but I started getting into the concepts of news radio. ......

Breaking down and downloading Internet Explorer 7 RC1
Well I guess it is time to finally try Internet Explorer 7 again. With this release being a release candidate, I feel more comfortable installing it ON A VPC! Beta 3 destroyed my machine! During the installation of Beta 3, something messed up seriously. I tried reinstalling but no go. I tried uninstalling, but no go. I tried installing 6.0 again, but no go. So then I had to try rebuilding the machine, and that worked. I will be evaluating the templates and administration utility ......

GWB | Minor Site Update
Last week I deployed a small update to based on a blogger suggestion to get the last version of the Admin Blog Editor’s input control on the server so he could do some cool stuff he wanted to with syntax. I published that update and then fixed some of the annoying CSS issues we had on the server side to make it a little cleaner looking UI. I need to do more work for sure, but I fixed the majority of the issues. Another area I put some time into was the long standing request for ......

GWB | Numerous Test Post Annoyances
Seriously why do new bloggers insist on placing a test post with the word “test” as the entire body? This is just a weird concept to me. Please stop. No one wants to see you introduced to a community as “test”. Rather we would like to see you say, “Hi, this is my first post. My name is [Insert Name] and I am [Insert Interests and Bio]”. This is a blog community so why not try out a blog post for a test? Anyway, I am very sorry for the number of test posts we have been receiving lately. I will add ......

GWB | Now with shorter domains ( or
With the popularity of twitter growing, we wanted to enable users to have the possibility to have a shorter URL for posting. To complete the idea, we purchased and, and you can selected which ever you prefer.

WLW, GWB, SubText - Images Upload Directly
With Windows Live Writer, there is no more need for Flickr, or hand rolling galleries to get pictures in your posts. If you have a post and you want to add a picture from your hard drive to it, just drag it on and publish. Metablogger and SubText will take care of the rest. Don't believe me? Check it out below: Brandon can't get away from computers ......
