Test post from Flock

Blog This!

You can easily blog interesting web content with Flock, in just a few clicks.

Well, ladies and dweebs, the above is not particularly interesting web content.  The cool part is that I was able to highlight and drag it in here – while perhaps no simpler than copy/paste, novelty is always amusing.  The cute thing about Flock (a browser under development based on Firefox) is that (among other features) it lets you blog through your browser rather than through a web page, so to speak.   An intriguing idea for a long afternoon at work.  I do seem to have a rather simple rtf interface with no html option.  So let’s see if html works in here.  <a href=””>Random link to Google.</a> 

A. Not really sure why I’m getting an extra planet icon next to “Blog This!”
B. Not really sure how I can make it want to be a title.
B. And html?….Yeah. Not so much.  Sad.

However, since the program is under development, and they claim it’s intended for people who live their lives online and blog regularly, then suggestions might lead to new features. =) HTML support would make sense, since how many bloggers don’t end up learning some level of HTML whether they intend to or not?

True, true! Put that on the “after I get back from Gainesville” list.

The extra planet icon is a side effect of the CSS for your blog. All tags get the planet to their left.

Flock, when I played with it over Thanksgiving, was rather entertaining. I found a nasty crash bug then, though.

The integration was particularly sweet, if memory serves…

Congratulations! I still actually need to send my app, but they said there’s a rolling deadline. Have you heard back from Emerson? I DIDDDD send that one and I’m on pins and needles!
