New blog platform

Due to blogger.com discontinuing FTP publishing support for domains (thanks Google), I couldn't update my blog. Not only that, nobody could post a comment either.

Blogger.com has server me well for nearly 7 years (84 in internet years), so there's bound to be a suitable .NET blog platform to suit my basic needs, i.e. no database (as my cheapo host doesn't support SQL Server and I don't want to change host as well.

It turns out that there wasn't a .NET blog platform to suit my needs, so I'm writing one. This is the first post with it, and very happy I am with it too. Each blog post is stored as an XML file in blogml format. I'm using disqus for the comments
