AIRPress, blogging on wordpress

Airpress, a nice kool little AIR app for blogging in wordpress. With the offline edition mode, it fits very well with the requirements of a blogging Desktop application like Windows Live Writer.
With all the super kool effects and UI, it just looks great. Drag and drop support for inserting images and other content is also helpful. I am myself writing this post from AirPress itself.

In my first attempt with the tiny app I found few issues:

  1. It doesn’t allows something like editing html so the corruption made by the UI can’t be corrected.
  2. Drag and drop operation on an image can be undone.
  3. You can’t place the text around an image in smarter ways.
  4. And last but not the least don’t even attempt drag and drop of a swf, it starts playing the swf in the player. May be a FOL only. But I think drag drop of only limited filetypes should be allowed. Anyways, wordpress will not accept the other filetypes.
  5. Undo functionality doesn’t work properly.
  6. And ya, I found an RTE also while dragging an HTML file
ArgumentError: The width of an HTMLControl can not be greater than flash.html::HTMLControl/flash.html:HTMLControl::validateAndConvertDimension()[C:\Documents and Settings\acrorel\Local Settings\Temp\aslibc-28157\]at flash.html::HTMLControl/set width()[C:\Documents and Settings\acrorel\Local Settings\Temp\aslibc-28157\]at

    You are right nisheet-
    Its still very difficult to blog off-line.
    But we hope that people like you soon make our job easier by developing the requisite applications. Flex is well on th way to replace Ajax.

    Adobe already had a good old tool “Named Contribute” which not only lets you do Offline editing but also gives you a complete Patented technology to WYSIWYG editing experience with Rich Media publishing to your blogs. However, the downside of it is the API support. The Atom API with its new version number increment in does provide API to most of it but doesnt work as a whole in its entirety. Say for example, the time stamp isnt acknowledged to past date the post while multiple trackbacks are acknowledged. Same thing goes with Movable Type API (wordpress, Movable Type, Typepad), but the glitches are over a little over atom.

  11. Poker Coaching :

    We have had the opportunity and privilege to tutor many players over the past year both domestically and internationally. Some of these players have gone on to become professional cash or tournament players, some are now crushing their local games, and even more are dominating on the internet. Our training program starts with an introductory class that will last approximately 1.5 hours. The inquires that are received range from beginner players to above average players who all have a common objective. A desire to take their game to a higher level. But now realize what they need can’t be found in any book.

    Our training is conducted via a personal messenger discussion or phone call combined with visual observation while playing on an internet poker site.

    Why not take advantage of being trained by professional poker coaches, Andy Taylor or Gerry Kane?
