The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

Just Testing

The fact that Windows Live Writer had ceased to function again, and in a more terminal manner than the incident a couple of months ago, somehow passed me by during December, only coming properly to my attention during the last week or so, when I haven’t had enough internet to do anything about it.

So, I’ve just splashed out on some data to allow me to download Open Live Writer as my customary “Illustrated Review of My Year” is overdue and it’s not a post I can put together via email (which puts all photos at the top of the post) nor is there any chance that I’m going to try to put it together via Blogger (which is just painful to use).

Alas, I’ve used so much data in downloading the necessary stuff that I may not have enough left for the post – but at least I can now put it together … assuming that this test works.

Of course, I need to test what happens with photos too, so here’s one of the mudfest of a track that we walked yesterday morning:



  1. Yers... its not working.... I thought it was because I got a new phone which seems to pick stuff up from my PC... but apparently not. Its a bugger, innit?

    1. At least being Open (rather than Windows), there's a chance that it'll be kept up to date and will keep working from now on.

  2. I'm using Open Live Writer. It replaces Live Writer and is identical...

    1. Not only are you using it, but you figured out how to do the labels thing. I meant to follow your instructions to label this post, but forgot. I'm a bit crap with blog labels in general.
