I've got a development instance of the new blog engine running on Azure: http://dailyparker-dev.azurewebsites.net/. Go ahead, take a peek.
It's important to note that I'm testing the import engine right now, so the collection of entries on the development site will probably change during debugging. Also, since it's a development site, it may disappear altogether from time to time.
Plus, the master source code (from which I'm merging into my custom code base from time to time) keeps changing. And merges don't always go well. And the DasBlog instance is still in production. And so on.
At this writing, the Daily Parker has 4,992 entries going back to 1998, so it'll take a while to import them all. One of the challenges has been making sure that deep links continue to work, and images show up, so each entry has to be parsed and its internal links fixed before it can be published. And I'm doing all this outside my usual work day.
So when is go-live? No idea, but I'm shooting for November 13th.* Stay tuned.
As for the image below, it serves no purpose other than to confirm that the import tool correctly alters image tags:
* Almost nothing in that entry is still true, but it's still the anchor post of this blog.
