Once the design was done, it was broken into blocks and really easy to use. I have however gotten way better and just included the blocks into the template for the site as well. Thus my blocks are smaller in size and few blocks needed. As for the IP.Content Databases don't really care as I am used to MySQL dbs. So if I want a custom block to display something I will just pull from a table as I please. But Ip.Content really allows you the freedom to do what ever design you want to do. The latest redesign of Last Strike is here.
HINT refresh the page a few times and u can see one of the top blocks in action.
