Just trying out this Performancing Firefox extension for posting to my blog. So far, it looks and feels pretty elegant. I love being able to post to a lot of different blogs from one spot. But does it have a spell check?
Don’t know if I mentioned that I just got my brand spanking new M-400 tablet, and am obviously in the throes of setting it up for my “new” life. It felt pretty weird not having to get out of bed this morning, but I did…eventually.
So Day One is all about answering e-mails and configuration. What fun! If you have any tips or experience about Performancing, let me know.

Not getting out of bed in the morning…. hhhmmmmm? Sounds interesting. The wonders of reinvention. I don’t think I ever did wish you good luck btw. Good luck….!

Very cool link to Performancing. I’ve been slowing down in my blogging lately wondering when I could edit from inside my browser. This is an excellent find.
Good luck with your reinvention.

I am a huge Performancing fan. I’ve been using it since v1.0. The new version 1.2 allows you to upload images within Performancing. A big improvement. Also check out the free metric tool they have for stats on your site. A nice little add in.
As for a spell check, they recommend SpellBound http://spellbound.sourceforge.net/ a nice little extension for FF that checks your spelling in any online form.
Congrats on your new life!

I’ve been using Performancing for about a month now. I like it, although spell checker would be a nice addition. Still, it is a quick way to make a blog post and if you do make a mistake, you can still go into your blog program to edit it, of course. I like the way that it pops up and down when needed. I rarely use the save option but have never lost a post, even one that I start one day and finish the next. Not perfect, but a good start. Barry

I tinkered with Performancing a few days ago, but settled on Deepest Sender. I do not recall why. I think it was that the launch was embedded in the right-click menu. It also is missing the spell-check, and even worse, Mac’s speech feature that reads my writing back to me.
I’m not worrying so much about that, because I’ll use Deepest Sender to point folks to other bloggers, with short commentary.
No comments from me about the slacker life-style of the free-agent consultant. To embarrasing.
David Kemper says
Good Luck, Will, with your reinvention. I must admit, I was inspired by your past postings on this topic, so much so that I too decided to leave my job and move on. Please keep your readers updated on your progress.

I am addicted to blogging with Ecto, I can hardly imagine life without it now. It does have a spellcheck!

Julie Lindsay is my HOD at ISD in Bangladesh, I believe you two communicate regularly. I am in the market for a tablet and the Toshiba Portege M400 is high on my list along with the HP Compaq TC4400 and the IBM Lenovo. Decisions, decisions. I would really appreciate some feedback on the M400 as it is, at the moment, top of my list though I have come accross some online reviews which have not shed it in a good light. Loud fan, non-upgradeable graphics card etc. The HP’s and the IBM’s are also looking good at the moment.
Julie is holidaying in the States this summer and says that if I buy one online and have it delivered to an address that she will be staying at, she will bring it back for me.
You can easily add spellchecking by installing the spellcheck extension as mentioned in the Performancing Hand book
Firefox 2.0 will have spellcheck integrated so you won’t need this extension soon.
