the empty set

ecto public beta

ectoThe new desktop blogging client ecto was released for public beta testing (expire end of January, 2004).

The current version is very stable, and offers all of Kung-Log's features and more. It is setup in a matter of seconds, and the new user interface is strait-forward for anyone who's used Kung Log or MovableType's post form.

I'm using it with MovableType and TypePad without any problem.

I'm experiencing a couple of problems with this release which were absent from the previous betas:

+ the HTML templates keyboard shortcuts don't work.
+ the backspace key works like the tab key when you're in the Title field: instead of erasing the previous character, it switches to the "Main" pane.

Anybody notice such behaviours ? I'm sure Adriaan is going to squash these before you finish reading this. He is extremely responsive.

ecto 0.1.7 was released last night and corrects all the above mentionned problems. Thanks Adriaan.

This weblog is an nth attempt to solve my multiple online personalities and weblog/rss feeds burnout issues. (more)


I have been contemplating the idea of upgrading my desktop Mac since this spring. The latest 27" iMac (Quad-Core) seemed the perfect candidate, but the release of Apple's 27" Monitor last September made me stick with the Mac Pro...


The autopsy of an iconic album cover picked up on A stacked graph of successive radio signals from pulsar CP 1919, in a 1977 astronomy encyclopedia that originated in a 1970 Ph.D. thesis. Fascinating <3...
