Deepest Sender

OK - here I am again, testing another blog editor. Deepest Sender is an online or offline editor that works with several blog platforms, including blogger and LJ.

It is actually a firefox extension, with a very small size! Maybe not as feature-rich as Raven - but, hey - if it can get that post up there, that's what counts!

There is a provision to upload an image, but one needs the full path to do that - I can get to that later.

To recap - this test, as was the Raven test, is bring performed on a Windows Millenium OS which has been installed on an old Packard Bell computer that accesses the internet via dial-up.

I figure if I can get it to work on here, it can work anywhere! I am using Firefox version and the version of Deepest Sender from 2007, version 0.8.0 - DS warns that newer versions may crash older versions of firefox, so I wanted to keep it real, if you know what I mean.

OK - next thing to do is hit the "Post" button - and then a grey box appeared, an alert regarding a date/time error.Fisrt I tried upgrading DS to version 0.9.0 - that didn't work - it is unable to run on this machine, so I guessed correctly when I picked 0.8.0 from the list.

I think I have the "fix" - if this publishes I will place the fix info in the "comments" section... here we go again...

  1. How about that! It works! Now I have two offline blog editors!

    Here is where I found the first "adjustment" I had to make: It's not that difficult! ... and the second fix was really easy: I used a file that I found on a website(darned if I can't find it now! ) BUT I do have a copy that I can email you if you need it - it is a small file! And it works!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
