CodePlex supports Windows Live Writer!

I am documenting local community portal that is hosted in CodePlex. Wikis have always been annoying for me when it comes to creating a good content.

This week I visited conference called Sinergija10 that took place in Belgrade, Serbia. Thanks to Microsoft Estonia who organized my trip there!
