Windows Live Writer

It's 2:48am and I'm futzing around with Team Foundation Server build. I came across a permission issue and was going to blog about it. And then realized that my current notebook build does not have any blogging software installed. And I hate used Web-based editors as my primary text entry mechanism.

So I remembered this post from the IE team on Windows Live Writer, a freely available blogging tool that we've made available. Downloaded it. Installed it. Using it.

Wow. Favorite feature in the 3 minutes I've been typing this? The Web preview mode that shows me what the blog post is going to look like based upon the format of my blog site!

This one's a keeper.

Next up is to see how well Word 2007 works in this space, but first ... another blog entry as to why I'm up at 2:48am.
