  1. You write very well!

    I did the same thing as you in trying to setup my WP blog, and received a funny error message.

    This is my first exposure to Roller. How does Flock treat it?

    I see your Flock post from October 21, 2005. I would love to hear your insights on Flock. We will have our next significant release mid-January.

    All the best,

  2. Hello Lloyd and welcome to elsua! Thanks very much for the kind comments and for dropping by. I have been reading off your weblog your experience with Performancing and Flock and it surely looks very interesting.

    Regarding your comments about Roller and Flock I must say that things could be a bit better. In general it is very easy to set it up with the MetaWeblog option, and it does grab the different weblog posts, however, when trying to post something into my weblog I am finding out that it apparently chops of the title of the post and it will not show it on the weblog itself, so people find it difficult to relate to. I have been looking into this for some time now and I cannot find a way to get it fixed, which is the reason why I haven’t weblogged yet in much more detail till now.

    I am still trying to see if I can fix it somehow. I will eventually share a couple of weblog posts over the next couple of days on both Flock and Performancing for both of my weblogs, the Intranet and Internet ones, since they are both using different weblogging engines and then you will be able to read what my experience has been.

    Finally, I am really looking forward to that significant release in mid-January as I believe that you folks are doing some really good work into bringing together a much more significant Web 2.0 effort integrated in the web browser than anyone else. Thus I can’t wait to get my hands on the new release. For the time being, stay tuned to those upcoming weblog posts and let’s see how far we can go.

    Again, I appreciate the feedback comments !

  3. Excellent stuff, Lloyd ! Thanks very much for sharing those links and for dropping by. I was not aware of the first link for the recent builds and I have downloaded already 0.4.11. I will be playing around with it for a little while and then I will let you know what my weblogging experience has been so far. I am really excited about trying it out specially since you have mentioned there have been many improvements with the weblogging component. I will let you know about my experiences in an upcoming weblog post. Thanks again for the feedback comments !

  4. I too prefer Opera to all the other browsers out there. Sadly, we are seeing more and more add-ins being created exclusively for Firefox. Seems every other day there is another tool or utility.

    I believe Opera held on too tight to the code options so people couldn’t readily go out and configure new plugins early on. Now, there is an uphill battle in getting these working.

  5. Hello Brad and welcome to elsua ! Yes, indeed, I have noticed that, too. I guess that is what it takes to be a pretty popular web browser as opposed to some others not so popular. However, I am wondering how much longer we will have to put up with this given the recent rumours of Opera being bought by whatever other major companies, although none of those rumours seem to have anything in concrete. Maybe it will happen in the end, who knows. But even if it hasn’t, given the fact that the browser is freeware at the moment, it may start opening things up in the end. We shall see.

    I am sure that after the browser has been made available now for free that we will start seeing more developments in due course, probably during the course of 2006. I do hope, too, though that it may not be too late. Let’s hope it isn’t, because it would be too bad to have to move to other more innovative web browsers than just Opera, because so far, in my opinion, it has been leading the way and, hopefully, it will continue to be like that for many more months to come.

  6. Thanks, Gayle, for dropping by and for sharing this feedback. I am glad to hear you have found this weblog post useful. I am sure that if you folks have given it a try you will enjoy it just as much as using any other weblogging tool, if not more. Glad to be able to help ! Appreciated the feedback.

  8. Hi Emily! Thanks very much for dropping by and for the feedback comments. I have now taken a look into my blogroll from this weblog template and also from my BlogLines account, which is currently feeding the blogroll, and I have successfully updated the new URL address of your weblog. I guess that it should be all right by now, since I have checked all of the updates and they have all gone through. Do have a look and let me know if you would need anything else and thanks again for the heads up on the new weblog address from your own weblog. Keep up the great work ! Thanks!
