Bleeding edge

So Simon is trying out the new Skype thing and I’m checking out Office Live and I comment that the site has only been live for seven minutes and it’s already slow (although as so often this week it turns out to be our DSL going down) and he says ’ah, bleeding edge of technology again"... and then I decide to try this new blogging client. Consider this an experiment. </p>

 There are many nice things in Post2Blog - though I’m not sure about the emoticons, I’m both amused and disconcerted by the feature that replaces certain words (like Post2Blog itself) with a snippet of stored text, it counts LJ user tags as a Web service and I’m not sure about seeing the tags in the post window as I compose. But it has a Word toolbar so I can compose in my favourite place (Word!) and I like the spelling checker. On the gripping hand, I can’t yet find any way to do LJ user_pics... 



EDIT: the LJ tags seem to need a little work
