Nearly a week.
I tried three different ASP.NET blogs, all had issues when I did the 'easy install' and kept giving me configuration errors.
So rather than fight with building my own cool blog I could manage and make look how I'd like it to look, I'll stick with blogger for now. I'd rather get the story recorded and posted than spend any more time messing around with blogs I can't get installed and running in a short period of time.
Keep checking back. I'll keep posting as I progress. WOO WOO!
