MGD King's Thoughts

Getting What's Inside My Head Out
 

About The King

The King of MGD!A lot of people ask me what does MGD King mean? Well, it was a nickname given to me because I used to drink large quantities of Miller Genuine Draft. Someone mentioned to me that I was the King of MGD, and so it stuck.

Slide.Show Now Online

I’ve been looking for a way to display a gallery or slideshow of images that I’ve taken over the years here on my site and unfortunately BlogEngine.net doesn’t have one built in (yet). I started doing some research and found a really cool slideshow created by Vertigo and powered by Microsoft Silverlight, but getting it to work with BlogEngine.net seemed a little over my head as far as programming in .NET is concerned. Fortunately, Bill Beckelman created an extension for BlogEngine.net that allows you to publish the slideshow in a post, and someone posted on Bill’s blog on how the code could be modified so that the extension would work on a page instead of a post.

So that’s how my Slideshow came about. It’s just some pictures of my brother’s wedding and two trips to Bristol Motor Speedway for the NASCAR races. I’ll be adding more albums to it in the future as I figure out which pictures I want to post. The link is on the right under the Pages section, or you can just click here.

Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks Bill! I can't take all the credit for the theme, I just modified the "Unknown Theme" by Free CSS Templates (see my disclaimer at the bottom).

And thanks for building the extension! Works like a charm!
