I’m back

Filed under: .NET & Excel — Dennis M Wallentin @ 9:01 pm

Hi all,

Without going into details I would like to inform You all that I’m now back again. The blog has been silent for nearly five month but it’s now time to re-activate it.

I’m aware of that some links are broken here. At present no files are available but have patience they will soon be available via SkyDrive.

It also exist some broken links to other published articles, like the OWC series. As of this writing I’m not sure how to approach it. One option is simple to re-publish them on my new coming site. Alternative I will rewrite them and publish them here.

Anyway, we have some great news to cover, Windows 8, Visual Studio 2012, SQL Server 2012 and not to forget Office 2013. Microsoft has done some excellent work with these tools although not every news gets us up and cheering.

Nevertheless, I’m happy to be back and I will soon publish some new articles.

Take care and welcome back!

Kind regards,
