Joining the Live Writer fever

Windows Live Writer is out, and it's another interesting innovation from the guys at Redmond. Being the dubious me, I was certain any offline blogging engine they could produce would certainly not integrate seamlessly with my years-old Movable Type installation.

Well how wrong could I be – here I'm writing this using Live Writer. The UI beats the web interface any time, and now we've also got some nifty features such as spell checking. But hey, why doesn't the spell checker recognize Redmond, rather attempting to replace it with Redondo instead.

On a serious note, a return to blogging has been overdue for quite some time. There is no foreseeable increase of available time, but the increase of things to say is making my head bulge. Perhaps this new toy will help. :-)
