Booyah - First Post

Posted: 11/11/2007 12:04:01 AM

After battling with with all the little quirks involved with switching hosting providers, I finally have a blog engine. I originally tried installing subtext but the most recent version is using the MS AJAX extensions, thus requiring that my 1and1 have the AJAX extensions installed and unfortunately 1and1 refuses to install it. Even though its been an officially supported MS product for almost a year. Anyway, I had to go with DasBlog and things seem to be going ok thus far, it took a while to tweak all the different config files just right. By the way, those are some ginormous config files (web.config => 190k). One confusing thing about DasBlog: it doesn't use a database! I always kind of thought a sql driven blogging engine was a little overkill, and if I knew that DasBlog just wrote everything to a xml config file, I would have started with it to begin with.

Anyway, I look forward to sharing my thoughts on .Net and development in general. Feel free to drop me a line at
