New year, new blog. I’ve finished the migration, although it took longer than I’ve expected. I’ve used Metalogix Blog Migrator tool, at I have to say: it’s great! The migration of my English content, including posts, categories and comments, was seamless. But I had some issues with my Hungarian content: it had been moved from Wordpress to SharePoint 2010, and the Blog Migrator skipped a lot of posts and categories, and skipped all the comments. After some research and testing, I found out that the reason of problem was the Hungarian language itself: we have a lot of characters with accents: á, é, í, ó, ö, ő, ú, ü, ű… And of corse, I have a lot of post titles including one or more characters with accents. Blog Migrator couldn’t migrate these posts, so I needed to do that manually.
Also, I needed to do that with the Hungarian comments.
But, as a good news: before the old aghy.hu, I’ve had another blog that had been turned out a few years ago, without any notification. So that, all of my posts had been lost. During this migration, I found out that I can reach my very old posts at web.archive.org! Finally, I migrated all of them to this new aghy.hu site, so that I have all the blog posts ever written by me here! Yes, my first post was born back in 2003…
As a result, here is my new aghy.hu site, with my English and Hungarian blogs all together.
Thanks fpWeb.net for hosting this site!
Anyway, here is a short retrospect of 2010:
- Five HUNSUG (Hungarian SharePoint User Group) meeting with Hungarian and foreign presenters (Joel Oleson and Michael Ganotti virtually, Michael Noel and Toni Frankola personally). Plust two HUNSUG Bowling event… ;)
- I’ve flown more than 40.000 miles, including the following destinations:
- Seattle & Redmond, WA
- Peru (Lima, Cusco, Machu Pichu)
- London ashcloud
- New York, Washington DC
- Düsseldorf, Germany
- Zagreb, Croatia
- Ann Arbor & Detroit, MI
- Many other virtual conferences and presentations (for example, SPS EMEA, SPS Arabia)
- Three books I’ve contributed in:

- Real World SharePoint 2010: Indispensable Experiences from 23 SharePoint MVPs (co-author)
- Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Unleashed (contributor)
- Post, White Papers, etc.:

Also, here are my plans for 2011:
