Mike Chris and I were down in Fremont recording. It never fails to amaze me how quickly time passes when I’m recording. I do however know all too well how long time drags when you’re waiting to record (Sorry about that Mike and Chris).
Too wound up when I got home, so I played Gran Tourismo 4 for a couple of hours. I hate that game. Two hours of going around the same 3 tracks to get enough credits to buy a decent car – only to have to race the same tracks to get enough credits to upgrade the car so it’s actually fast enough to do anything with.
And now I’m looking at my blog, thinking I haven’t touched this thing in ages.
I really dug .Text when I set this site up because of it’s integration with DotNetNuke, but now, about two years later, it’s the bane of my aspirations of redesigning and upgrading the SOL site. If I upgrade to DNN 4, then the blogs break. Not to mention the fact that in order to upgrade .Text, I have to migrate to Community Server which has a horrible multi-upgrade process. Not to mention the fact that there is no tie-in with DNN for the latest version of CS. Not to mention the fact that I don’t want to have to think so hard for a personal site. CS and DNN don’t play nice like DNN and .Text. Bummer.
I’ve been working with DNN 3/4 for awhile and there are some excellent modules. They even have a pretty decent blogging module. That said, nothing on the ASP.Net front comes close to Community Server. Lots of functionality and a big user base. Dunno. I have a couple of sites using the blog project for DNN and if it appears stable enough, maybe I’ll write my own migration scripts.
The Munsters is on. Guess I better pack it in and go to bed.
