I’m trying out a couple of new bits of software. The first is ecto, an offline blog editor. Previously, I have tried Zempt which was pretty good but would occasionally not work. ecto seems a bit more sophisticated with some nice touches including a WYSIWYG preview which can refer to the site’s stylesheet. I’ll see if I feel like paying for it in two weeks. Thanks to Rob Paterson for the tipoff.
I’m also trying out Klipfolio, a neat information update… thingy. You program it to track newsites, rss feeds, mailboxes, weather reports etc. Has a nice user interface and it’s free. Thanks to Robert Scoble for mentioning it.
