Welcome to the new Sinnott Solutions Blog

Some things you plan for...

A plan had been in the works to rebuild the Sinnott Solutions Inc. website for some time now. Hope you like it! Fair warning, I'm having a good time playing with ideas and techniques I've been wanting to try for a while now; so it's fair to say that things will continue to be tweaked for a while. What can I say? I'm geek and this is fun for me. :-)

...some things are planned for you.

What wasn't in the plan was for the folks at Blogger to decide to rip the rug out from under those of use who had found creative ways to combine their service with ftp to provide an easy way for clients to update parts of their sites.

No, that certainly wasn't in the plan.

And yet, that's exactly what happened.

The good news is, for most clients I've found a workable solution, and this blog is my working example. For others, well, I'm still looking for a fix. In both cases, you'll be hearing from me about your custom solution over the next couple of weeks. Of course, if you don't want to wait, just drop me a line and we'll chat about the options. I'm not happy about the way Blogger has forced us to make these changes, or about having to leave the content on their servers. But for now, for clients already comfortable using their tool, we can make it work.

But Blogger team, I hope our faith in you isn't misplaced. We'll be watching.

Can Unplanned Results Actually be Benefits?

Another thing I hadn't planned on was reviving the blog during the redesign. But now that it's here, I think I'll give it another go. Time will tell if this is a beneficial side effect of the Blogger issue.
