This post doesn't apply for you aggregate surfers; those of you who come to http://blogs.technet.com/wardpond, please read on.
If you look closely, over at the left hand side of the bloo.. er, I mean, blog.. over on the left hand side of the blog, you'll see a couple of new search-related features. They're real easy to pick out because they're the ones all slammed up against the left-hand margin of your browser page, as opposed to the subtle but now-obvious indenting of the rest of this content.
While I'm busy dusting off HTML "skills" that were last employed to say Hello, World in 1992, here's the rundown: the default Telligent search box has been removed from the site in favor of new tools for bloggers and blog readers from the Windows Live group.
I hope you find these tools useful; please let me know if you do (or in the unlikely event that you don't :)). Keep an eye on the homepage in the coming days as I work to integrate them more seamlessly into the flow of the rest of the page.
If you'd like the HTML that enables these little goodies, please let me know; I don't want to post it publicly right now because, frankly, I don't understand it all yet. The progression of the aforementioned "integration" efforts should give you some insight into how my learning curve is progressing.
