Well, I went ahead and made the new Blog the homepage of abulsme.com. A bunch of things are still rough and need to be adjusted to really work right. But I've got some time this weekend. I'll fix as much as I can, then anything that is left slowly fix over time. My priority will be things linked directly from the front page. The deeper things are, the longer until I clean them up and make them match the new front page.
Also have to put some things in place to start backing up this new stuff since it is all database driven instead of file based. Can't be losing anything for posterity!
