There are a number of open source asp.net CMS around, such as n2 and mojoportal. Even our company build an opensource CMS, AdvGenCMS. That is still in beta status. We just started to rolling out for some customers to test. Thus, we are still using some opensource cms. There are two of them I like most, Umbraco and Orchard. I love Orchard a lot, it is using MVC, Fluent Hibernate and Autofac. Moreover, the admin interface has a lot of functions and you can drag and drop the widget. That is easy to use. The major problem used too many opensource libraries. I need the system to be simpler.
So, I come to the second choice, Umbraco. This is widely supported, a number of companies are using this.
Moreover, the admin interface is very simple, nice and clean, that is a out of box solution!
I read the blog of Google Compute Engine. The preview of this product is available for everyone. That is good to have an option of Amazon EC2. We can create virtual instance in the Google. But it doesn't like Amazon EC2, you can choose your OS template. Anyway, that is good to have an choice rather than Amazon.

SSD is so good. I planned to upgrade all of our dev pcs to use SSD. It can bring the huge performance to our pcs, but the cost is so high. We have a lot of data in each PC. At least, we need 256GB, my PC even need 512GB. That costs us all of money. SSD is still not affordable for the small business like us.
I am using Viber in Android for around a year. That is very cool, it binded with my mobile number. Yesterday, I found there got a major update and it has Desktop version. That is great! I got Desktop version installed. It can use the same account with my android. Therefore, I can send message to other people with my desktop. That is much easier to type via keyboard.I love it!
Recently, I have talked with a number of web developers. That is very interesting. Some of them have very strong programming skills. Some of them have very strong Graphic Designer. The key point is Web Developer = Programmer+Graphic Designer. Interesting!
