David Silverlight's XML and .NET GrokSpot

To grok (pronounced GRAHK) something is to understand something so well that it is fully absorbed into oneself. In Robert Heinlein's science-fiction novel of 1961, Stranger in a Strange Land, the word is Martian and literally means "to drink" but metaphorically means "to take it all in," to understand fully, or to "be at one with."

Willy Wonka has nothing over XMLPitstop.com

Much the same way that  Willy Wonka's  Chocolate factory was dark for a while and suddenly came to life, XMLPitstop took  a bit of a break and has now come back to life with a number of new features, some fixes and alot of new plans for the upcoming year.    Some of the changes include old features that stopped working as they should as well as numerous new enhancements to boot.   The short list would be the following:

a) Featured Examples (improved) This section is now much improved.  If you add an example, you will see the new changes.

b) Featured Articles - This section was really a need that was just filled

c) Presentations - Many folks ask to be able to download presentations that I have given.  I am happy to have this new section. 

d) Blogs - My Blog section is back.  In fact, I guess that you wouldn't be able read this entry. [:D] I even came up with a name that I like.  "David Silverlight's XML and .NET GrokSpot".  Any feedback on the name is appreciated.

e) Pictures - My world trip pictures are not back.  I have not re-enterred all of them as of yet, but I do have a bunch of my pics from Amsterdam as well as from Ireland

f) ReBlogger - I have implemented the reblogger Blog Aggregator which is truly a phenominal tool.  I give it a big thumbs up!!!

Last but not least, we have a new member to the XMLPitstop.com team.   His name is Duray Akar and without his help none of this would be possible.  Nice Job Duray!
