Blogging Made (Too) Easy

Blogging Made (Too) Easy

I've recently started using Dashboard (I've been using Tiger for ages, but really didn't pay much attention to Dashboard).

Most of Dashboard's built-in functionality, e.g. calendar, calculator, units converter, dictionary, is pretty darn useful, but I really don't see why it needs to live in its own layer. In some cases it's actively annoying.

One of the most popular Dashboard widgets allows you to add a post to your blog by typing into it and clicking a button. This is almost too easy. Actually it *is* too easy.

So here goes...

But first, a geek joke I came across on (he cites his source...)

Q: "What's the difference between Leopard* and Vista**"

A: "Microsoft's Engineers are really excited about Leopard."

* Mac OS X 10.5, the next version of Mac OS X, due early 2007.

** Windows Vista, codenamed "Longhorn", the much delayed next version of Windows.
