Not having high speed Internet sucks. I don’t believe people who say they’re “liberated” without Internet, or “technology makes us anti-social”.
The fact is high speed, convenient communication links makes me more efficient.
My company is an Internet company, both its products and the way it operates. It is not liberating when you can’t easily access your customers details, or download the latest product source code.
I update myself speedily by reading tweets, news feeds, ebooks.
I purchase things in minutes from shops that is also efficiently run without showrooms.
So come on VirginMedia, fix it quickly!
So it seems there is a new client on the block… from Microsoft. It recognizes WordPress.com just fine. When it said WYSIWYG, it weren’t kidding. It actually downloads the CSS etc for this blog, so you are using the exact same font, width of screen, the lot. Clean interface, although by doing that it looks different to other Windows XP apps. Or is this new Vista Ui thingy?
So, for in browser blogging just use Performancing for Firefox, for desktop blogging use Windows Live Writer. Easy.
(Just about to post, found that I couldn’t easily add categories on the fly. Bummer.)
Apparently you can now enable stealth mode on your posts. Good for self-censorhip!
Performancing for Firefox has been updated, this release is important because it now works way better with metaweblog API, such as .Text which is used by The Software Toolsmith.

I guess this would be one of the future paid for features in wordpress.com…
For my programmer’s blog The Software Toolsmith, the otherwise excellent Performancing extension on Firefox didn’t work well with the Metaweblog API. So while waiting for an updated version I decided to look around for another client. Blog Writer from Zoundry seems to work well. So I’ll settle on that for now.
I needed a spreadsheet that I can access from anywhere, and found Num Sum. Quite cool really. A bit slow in Firefox 1.5, but usable, and cool nonetheless.
