Well, it looks like Word 2007 has a blogging feature. I shall investigate further …


I’ve got a new PC, so there will be a short period of adjustment while I set everything up.

Broken Internet :(

November 27, 2006

My ADSL router at home is broken 😦  Still, it’s under warrantly so I’m waiting for a replacement.

That’s why I’ve been quiet recently.  Not supposed to blog from work (shhh, don’t tell anyone).


Currently Listening …

September 6, 2006

I have found a plug-in for Live Writer called ‘Currently Listening’ (trackback) that puts Amazon links to the music currently playing in media player as I type.  Like this:


Butterflies and Hurricanes by Muse from the album Absolution


Unfortunately, it links to amazon.com, and not amazon.co.uk and there’s no way to change it without manually editing the HTML.  Never mind, eh?

I tried leaving a comment about this on the blog entry, but kept getting a CGI error.

Using LiveWriter Beta

September 5, 2006

I’ve decided to use Microsoft’s beta for LiveWriter to do this blog.

I don’t know why I prefer desktop application to web-based ones.  Maybe I’m just old fashioned.  Or emotionally scarred from the loss of data files on the server when I was a student.

Why bother blogging?

September 5, 2006

OK, so we don’t really need yet another blog. Especially from a nobody like me. So why bother blogging?

Really, it’s just to get stuff out of my head. All this stuff floats around until I write it down and I want it out, dammit! It’s my head, I wan’t some ‘me time’.

So I don’t really care if no-one ever reads this, it not for reading, its for writing.
