You missed the important parts of my story. If that is indeed the ASD fuse that's blowing, it will only blow when the ignition switch is first turned on. After one second, the ASD relay turns off, unless you crank the engine. Once the ignition switch is on, the fuse has blown, and you're not cranking the engine, you will be able to pop a new fuse in and will not blow unless you try cranking the engine again.
To approach it a different way, put the light bulb in there in place of the blown fuse. You'll see it get full brightness for one second after turning on the ignition switch, then it will go off until you crank the engine at which time it will get full brightness again. The bulb limits current to a safe value and gives you a nice visual indication of how much current is trying to flow without wasting a lot of fuses.
