I found a couple of hours to hack, and decided to spend them on BartleBlog.
Here's what got done:
UI for blog preferences (still need to do maybe ten of these little modules).
Search for files in reasonable places (instead of using the DB in the current folder, for example).
Started work on a first-use wizard
Started working on a original and simple help system (resource files, yay! ;-).
Implemented (lamely) posting of "stories" which are static pages that are not part of the blog's flow.
I intend to spend a couple of hours on it every day for the next ten days or so. After that, who knows, maybe a release will be reasonable.
