Received a surprised IM this morning from Jeff Schoolcraft, Code Camp Organizer Extraordinaire and sometime blogger. He was struck dumb by the fact that I actually used the online editor to pen my blogs. He tried very hard not to question both my sanity and intelligence when I told him that the #2 pencil was my first choice but it only updated my monitor.
He patiently explained to me that there was a pretty nifty desktop tool available and it was free. He even sent me a link to download it.
So I installed Windows Live Writer and am taking it for a spin. So far, so good. Much more space to work with, a nice clean interface and no worries that my connection is going to die or my blog app is going to recycle while I am writing an overlong post.
