Blog woes…

Windows Live Writer on Windows 7 is a little… unstable. "The “Save” button crashes it. So I was playing around with a couple of other blog clients today… two non-starters and one that helpfully ignored the “post as draft” button. So ignore the post about nulls being null, ‘cos it’s not finished, and bear with me until I get this thing sorted. (Other than the Live Writer problems, Windows 7 is really looking quite nice. Like Vista but quicker and less… opinionated. I like it.)

Google docs makes quite a good blogger client. Just go to Share -> publish as web page.

I presume it's IE8 that you're having problems with, rather than Windows 7. I don't see how the OS can make a difference on it's own?

No... Windows Live Writer's an offline (desktop) blogging client, that's beautifully stable on XP64 and Vista 64, and doesn't appear to work properly on Windows 7. So yeah, could be IE8 related, but I honestly don't know.
