This is actually something really, really long overdue.  v5 is from the year 2008.  That is SEVEN years ago.You will notice:Responsive DesignComments are replaced with Disqus - the original comments are imported, but Squarespace's own comment spam detection has not been great for me. Squarespace v5 renders pages in X-COMPAT-IE8 which means it looked extra sucky.You will find missing:Some of my game blog pages - I've removed them because they are just the rambling of a young man./Storage is a bit funny - I "hope" I imported my old stuff properly.My badges and tag cloud.  I hope to add them back
in time.What I am missing:I am absolutely devastated that v7 doesn't work with Windows Live Writer....(Read whole news on source site)

What Your Open Source Culture Really Says, Part One by Shanley Kane | Model View Culture

Our open source project is a meritocracy. What Your Culture Really Says: Our open source project is
basically a benevolent dictatorship that the same people and/or their
drinking buddies have been leading since its inception. Because we
worship “founding” things, even mediocre open source projects, our
primary maintainer is probably the person who wrote the first prototype,
even if they have no other skills relevant to leading open source
projects including effective communication, people and
management, conflict resolution, vision and strategy skills, and empathy
for users and contributors. There is no defined path to leadership

SSRS–adding a pipe delimited text export option in Sharepoint Integrated mode

This blog got me close and when combined with the information from this one I was able to come up with the following powershell script which does what I needed. You’ll need to run this from the Sharepoint Management Shell (I logged on to the console of one of our app servers to do this) using an account that has farm admin rights. $svrDirectives = @"
