Just one month and few days before the official release of ASP.NET 2.0 along with Visual Studio 2005, I have deployed my website TheZubair.NET running on top of ASP.NET 2.0 Beta 2 and SQL Express 2005.

check it out and give me your feedback here.
I checked the new site zubair, and become an early member as well. :). I register as well I meant.

A noticable thing is the speed. Somehow it loads and operates faster. The other thing is the user interface. I like it. :)

The real benefit of this site will be the content you publish, like your blog.

Good luck for your future endeavours.

Actually, the site is based on the Personal Website Starter Kit that ships with VS2005 and explained by Bill Evjen (link in the other post), it is a ready to start template but you are really encouraged to customize it to as much extent as you possibly can. So I am doing just that, what customization I did? you will find it on the website itself (under Whats'New or Whats Up Lately or anything of that sort).

The website loads faster, thanks to ASP.NET 2.0 and IIS 6 that serve the pages really faster compred to any other platform, although I haven't implemented Caching so far.

I have added your username to my friends' list, now you can view my Public as wel as Personal photos, presently any anonymous/signed user can only view Public photos until he is added to the Friends role.

Insha-Allah I am going to finish this Images thing today and will upload the stuff.

I am planning to put a demo for each new feature on the website in which Master Pages, Membership, Role Management etc are already covered but I am planning to cover Atlas, Web Parts, Cache Invalidation etc. Besides all this tech stuff, what other contents would you like to see on the website. I am also planning to put my entire archive of links for ASP.NET 2.0/ASP.NET 1.1 on the website, guess it might be helpful to anyone out there.

Keep me posted and keep checking back! And a huge thanks for all the feedback!
