Well the resolution to that problem was to run a script on the SQL database to do this:


Once I did that the blogs were once again loading up but this time looking at SQL 2005.  I also found this post interesting as it details the difference between (local) and localhost

But after I did it I wasn”t sure if there was a security impact so I asked greater minds than I what, if anything, was the security impact.  That”s one thing that I don”t think is easy right now.  When you are not security database savvy, it”s hard to weed through the good information and the not so good info to know the right things to do for SQL.
