Blogilo. An excuse for a test post — 4 Comments

  1. Did someone call?

    It looks kinda like Live Writer all right, but I would hate to lose the image processing side of things. I know this is probably a daft question, but have you tried Wine? I know some Windows applications run under that.

    • Grandad – Yup, I tried Wine but Windows Live Writer requires IE and other associated Windows type bits in order to function properly that Wine couldn’t possibly emulate. There were Linux users tried.

      So I actually installed VirtualBox and loaded it up with XP Pro just to run WLW. If I changed Distros I just hauled my “.VirtualBox” profile over to it. Saved me from reloading XP into VirtualBox all the time.

  2. FYI: I write my posts beforehand, using Word, and then drop them into WordPress’s post editor. I still sometimes have to screw around with the HTML, but at least I don’t have to deal with the slowness of WP’s system.

    But that’s no big deal. Really, this was just an excuse for a test comment — to go along with your test post.
    .-= Larry Wallberg´s last blog ..The State of the Union – for Non-Dummies =-.

    • Larry – I used to do that myself back before Windows Live Writer came out. I even wrote a post about it but it’s somewhere lost in the dungeons of my blog. I don’t go down there anymore though–it scares me. And thank you for using my excuse to post for an excuse to comment. Any old excuse is good.
