Current Multi-blog enabling LINQ to SQL BlogEngine.NET Provider. (Updated 3/12/10) I have been asked for this code so that we can share the multi-blog solution that has been working for me for almost a year now. This is the time to check it out and help make it work for yourself and others. I’m going to continue to “dog food” this here. Current version of BlogEngine.NET supported by this provider, as of this post, is 126.96.36.199. Although I need to update my own site(s) from 188.8.131.52.
When developing multi-tiered applications, it's not uncommon that to encounter code and architectural "noise" where a developer is forced to shift languages between the business logic layer and the data layer.
