Content Slider Module 01.01.01 Released

Content Slider Module for DotNetNukeI need to get back on track with having a blog post ready for each and every DotNetNuke module release I make.  In this case, I definitely wanted to make it a point to have an update here in the blog.  There have been 4 different releases of the Content Slider module since this module was first made available two months ago.  As it turns out, there is a lot of demand for this module.  After all, there have already been over a thousand downloads so far.  Not bad for being in the wild for 8 weeks.

I guess it’s my turn…

A littler over a year ago, I was hungry and was looking for a new place to have a meal.  During my online search, I found a local place that claimed to have the world’s hottest hamburger.  It is at The Swingin’ Door and the burger is called the Habanero XXX Burger.  You have to sign a waiver just to eat it!  I just had to have it…
