My file extension pt2

Well, it didn’t take me too long of hacking around to figure out how to paste in Html. I checked the help file and it mentioned the rich text editor is only used by IE. So I pop over to Firefox, and voila. Here is the file extension that describes me. 🙂

So that’s my first peeve with this Msn Spaces blog utility: no clear way to shift between Plain Text/Markup/Rich Text editing modes. Of course it works by moving over to Firefox, but that’s not a terribly convenient way, just to paste a link or an external image reference.

My next peeve is that I had to delete and recreate both of these entries, because I could not simply delete an image I added to the blog entry. I can add photos till the cows come home, but can I delete? Nooo.

This space is soon to be renamed 1001 Things that Annoy Anthony. I think Sebas made a joke about that once.

I should probably create a list of things that annoy me about Msn Spaces… In an attempt to be cute and postmodern, I think I’ll use the Msn spaces List creator to make that list of things that annoy me about Msn Spaces.

Gerry sent me this link this morning.

I came up an .ogg file.

"You are .ogg Even though many people consider you cool and happening, a lot still find that you’re a bit too weird to hang out with."

This was so laugh out loud funny that I had to immediately rush over here and paste this. I would really like to start using this space for keeping track of day to day thoughts and trivial events, mostly because I have such a terrible memory and feel that most days my life belongs in the pages of a Kurt Vonnegut novel.

I’m disappointed that the blog editor does not have any utility for pasting Html markup. This is a serious flaw. The extension test provided the below Html markup to be pasted onto a personal site. A great idea. Too bad this Msn blog does not have much flexibility. It definitely scores high in ease of use and accessibility, but I would definitely appreciate a couple more advanced options. Maybe when I get a spare minute or two I will snoop around and see if there is any way to hack the output, so I can paste in Html.
