INETA Feed on the main page
A a member of two INETA committees, I feel user groups are one of the most important entities to make developers the best they can be.  If you don't attend your local user group, you need to stop coding and head right over.  On the left bar of the Main Page for you will find a list of the next user group meetings with INETA speakers.

Added .Text Functionallity
I created the ability to block a post from the mainfeed but not the individual's blog themselves.  It is just a bit in the blog_Content table and I had to change the stored procedure “DNW_GetRecentPosts” to only grab post with the bit turned on.

Off to a good start
Looks like we are off to a good start.  If you know anyone who wants a blog without the hassles of blogging about a particular topic, please send them my way.  The future plans will have a Main Feed that will be monitored by the administration before putting it up so you can blog about whatever without making people frustrated that are looking for geeky developer entries only.
