Vancouver Olympic Media Centre

Main press centre in Vancouver.

I picked up the last of my Olympic credentials on Saturday and so am officially official. Lots of Olympic workers and media, with special clothes and accreditation tags around their necks,  and police in the downtown core but hard to see ‘Olympic fever’ among regular folks. Most of the Olympic signage you’re seeing is commercial but there are a few small signs of locals stepping up and adding to the real (as opposed to paid) spirit by decorating windows or hanging Canadian flags. Hopefully we’ll see more of that as the events progress.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the
    expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for
    about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
    into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
