  1. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!|

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  3. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
