another first for today

July 26th, 2007

So this is my first test post using Windows Live Writer. My first reaction is, cool, I get to see this post more or less as it will appear in real life. SEcond reaction is that unlike what I expected, WLW did not see that I’m using a Chinese version of XP then automatically set itself to Chinese. Well, that’s a logical thing for software to do when you install it, set itself to the language the OS is in, but it gets irritating when there’s no way to change the language. Or in the case of, I think, AVG, you have to pay to change the language. Also, the layout seems pretty cool. Quite style-y for a Microsoft product. And does the ‘windows live map’ option under ‘insert’ mean I can stick maps in my posts, too? That could be cool. Well, so far I’m impressed. But I’m getting tired, and it’s getting time to get offline, so I guess the playing around and seeing just how cool this new toy is (or is not, perhaps) will have to wait till tomorrow.

    I knew you would embrace the Dark Side. You will be known as Darth Wore. No, War. Er, Waugh? Blast I knew I should’ve bought that book of Darth names. Oh, and together we shall rule the blogosphere.

    Anyway, I am not your father, Luke, even although some of the kids at LuHe thought I was.

    And others thought you were my uncle, or my elder brother… And some of the staff thought I was you. Must’ve really freaked them out when they saw us together.

    Such is the power of the Dark Side.
