Tryin' 'er out


I just downloaded the Windows Live Writer blogging software, so I figured I'd give it a quick try.

Exams and essays will be hindering my ability to post for the remainder of the day, but I will try to be back at some point this evening or tomorrow morning with an update. 

*so it appears that this beast works quite well, including a fully functional Technorati tag component.  Nice.  Very nice.  For anybody who has used Windows Live Writer and has some tips, feel free to leave a comment!

The real trick I've had with programs in the past has been block quoting, so let us see how block quoting works, using a portion of an essay I recently wrote:


The significant role of emotions in literature extended also to Romantic music through the works of such musical giants as Ludwig van Beethoven and Joseph Haydn. Even today, music allows composer, performer and audience alike to allow individual emotions and insights to find meaning in each note, chord and movement, enabling us to, “pierce the innermost mystery of the universe.”[1] It should be of no surprise that Romantics would be drawn to the power of music which has the ability to, “convey an infinite range of impressions, feelings and thoughts [making it] the ideal art of Romanticism.”[2]

Wow, it even includes a footnote editor!!  So far so good...
