Yeah, I know how WP works and I know it wouldn't be possible with WP 
like that...

Ok, well...when I was hosted on 100megswebhosting.com servers before.. 
and I had vindictivebastard.com and twisted-society.com BOTH leading 
people to the SAME site. They set up VB as the main site on their 
account, twisted-society.com was a secondary domain on account, pointing 
to VB's IP address or server path or something...

Cause, BOTH domains took users to the SAME site.. and when reading 
posts, posting comments, etc etc.. it worked on BOTH as it was ONE site, 
ONE database... unless I'm forgetting the exact way it was done.. it was 
a couple years back...

I suppose I COULD setup a WP 2.5 SVN blog on VB.COM, add VB.NET's posts, 
comments, pages, etc etc to VB.COM database... and have TWO of the same 
contents / comments / etc etc just on two separate domains.. but that 
can be messy and confusing.. cause I'd have to post the same posts and 
etc to two separate blogs.... eeeek!

I'm thinking about contacting their support once, see what they did for 
sure... But I do remember when going to twisted-society.com/post/1234 
showed same as vindictivebastard.com/post/1234 .. I'm just trying to 
remember if the databases for the both were in fact separate or not.. 
Or, if I even had a database for twisted-society.com and they had it set 
up so it would just use vindictivebastard.com's some how.. .. crap, I 
think I'm going to email them once....
