RSLs - What Are They, How Do I Use Them, and Why Isn't Mine Working?

In this post we are going to examine the ins and outs of Runtime Shared Libraries.

Yep, I Am Blogging Again

Some of you may know that I blogged at phusor.com in the past. At the time, I felt like a large part of the posts I read on other blogs were either very repetitive or that the information was based mainly on opinion rather than facts. This made me examine my own posts, and I realized I was guilty of the same. Because of this, I quit blogging. That was about two years ago.

Recently I have started learning a lot of new technologies, meeting a number of cool people, and am also preparing to launch a project of my own. I have also started creating plugins for various open source projects. I feel this gives me a lot to talk about. I've also had a number of peers and friends ask me to start blogging again. After some consideration, I decided to give it another try.

I can't promise you I'll blog frequently. I have a terrible commute, I work long hours, I work on my own projects and have to keep some semblance of a personal life. In other words, I'm a lot like you.  Thanks for those who encouraged me to start blogging again, and to you for coming to my site and using your valuable time to read my 2¢.
