After months of keeping on my TODO list `write a blog system', I gave up and wrote a small C# program to pull the existing messy files massage them and upload them to the site. Part of the problem is that I need something that will work in disconnected mode and let me use Emacs to compose these entries.
I also gave up waiting for BlogX to be released: I like it, but the GotDotNet workspaces software is just horrible to use. Even with Windows its horrible.
Microsoft still has some things to learn from the existing open source tools.
The next step is to write my own ASP.NET-based weblog system, but I have to overcome the the feeling of guilt everytime am not working on the core of Mono.
