I must be mellowing as I get older. When I got my Surface Pro (was it really only February of 2013 that they came out?) I was still working with Microsoft, and a colleague at the Microsoft Store in Toronto (back then there was only the one) arranged for me to get in early so … Continue reading Surface Pro 4: First impressions
Many of you probably think that because I have this great blog that I am smarter than others. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is, sometimes I just research a problem that I am having until I find the solution... I blog about it, and then I usually forget about it. So … Continue reading Helping Others… Helping Myself.
A few weeks ago – somewhere around the second week of November or so – this blog hit a bit of a milestone. It welcomed its 183,060th visitor of 2015. That may seem like a bit of a weird number to celebrate… but it is significant in that it is the same number of visitors … Continue reading Another Milestone for TWAM
It honestly doesn’t seem like that long ago… and of course it seems like forever. Of course I have been blogging for well over a decade, but I seem to remember sometime in 2010 when Cory Fowler started telling me I should migrate my blog from Community Server over to WordPress. I was pretty happy … Continue reading Five Years Of WordPress: A Celebration?
I have been blogging with Windows Live Writer for a very long time. So when Microsoft did not see fit to install a Universal App (formerly Windows 8 app) of it, I was glad that I could simply install the same old version... and even if they were not going to upgrade it who cares, … Continue reading Live Writer: Not gone, just a pain in the Windows 10.
I do my best to blog consistently, but as I am sure you all know, sometimes work (and life) get in the way. I assure you it is never my intent to shirk the blog… but the reality is that (despite my having placed a very handy PayPal link on the site) I have never … Continue reading Another Humble THANK YOU!
Thank you. Three years ago The World According to Mitch, a blog that I started because the two or three dozen people to whom I would e-mail my thoughts and insights got sick of getting my e-mails, was recognized by BizTech Magazine as one of the 50 Must Read IT Blogs. For that year there … Continue reading Fourth Year: Thank you once again!
For over a decade I have been working on this blog, first on MITPro.ca, then a couple of different URLs and every year my readership has grown... and I have worked hard to maintain the level of posts that you have come to expect. While this year has been a difficult one for me (more … Continue reading Rock the Vote!
I hope you do! In 2011 we were awarded one of BizTech Magazine's 50 Must Read IT Blogs. We need your help to stay on the list! Please take a moment to vote here: https://list.ly/~ZTczk and let me know that you still find my writings useful and handy... or at least amusing and interesting 🙂
September 1st came and went... most of us in North America enjoyed the long Labour Day weekend, whether we were with family, at the cottage, enjoying the CNE, or doing whatever people who don't live in Toronto do for Labour Day.What most of us did not feel was the hard stop of all of our … Continue reading Goodbye TechNet… But not quite.
As The World According to Mitch grows in popularity, I get a lot of questions from people about the tools and platform that I use. So when I was asked by Richard Myers if he could write a guest post about the platform I have been using for the past two years I was glad … Continue reading Reasons Why WordPress Cloud Hosting is a Great Idea
Somalia. Greenland. Vanuata. Montserrat. Cook Islands. Samoa. Mali. Sierra Leone. Burundi. Federated States of Micronesia, Liberia, Equatorial Guinea, Niger, Djibouti, British Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands. What do these sixteen nations have in common? Certainly not geography – some are tropical islands, others African nations, and of course Greenland should, by all rights, be its … Continue reading The World… for the World According to Mitch.
There has been a rumour floating around that I was not happy at Microsoft Canada. Whoever started that rumour was not me, and it could not have been further from the truth. I have loved working with the DPE Team, I have loved almost everything about the past year. With that being said, over the … Continue reading Big in Japan…
Two years ago I had not heard of BizTech Magazine, so when I found out that this blog had been listed on their list of 50 IT Blogs You Must Read I was truly surprised, and honoured. I then started following them and reading the publication, and that increased the value of the honour. A … Continue reading A Humbling Accolade, Year 3
I want to be clear that this is a one-time rant. I generally LOVE WordPress. I think it is an excellent blogging platform and I recommend it to everyone who asks. This is probably ‘just one of those things.’ As well, it is actually a rant about the WordPress App for Windows 8, and not … Continue reading Not thrilled with WordPress today…
