Well, it would seem that Microsoft does not want anyone to embed the photos that they upload to their windows live account as a slide show. I've tried many different ways to do it along with using their new silverlight slide show, but to no avail.
As a result, they are forcing me to move away from their solution to something else. I've chosen to move to Picasa, a google property, in order to be able to post my photos. You can see the first post using Picasa below. Frankly, I think it works much better than the slide show that Microsoft had available anyway.
So long windows live photo, it was fun while it lasted, hello Picasa!
As time allows, I will go back to the prior house project posts and as I upload those photos to Picasa, I'll update the posts to embed the new Picasa slide show.
