Kung Log and GAG

I found a nice little application that lets me update the blog directly from Mac OS X. (Actually I didn’t exactly find it – it turned up, as so many great OS X apps do, on VersionTracker.com.) Kung-Log 1.2 is an open source shareware program that is much easier to use than the native Movable Type forms. It adds OS X spell checking (no more Oaklahoma for me) and built-in and configurable HTML templates. I know Live Journal and Blogger have similar applications. I’m really happy to see this one for Movable Type. Maybe I’ll even blog more now.
(Postscript: Ben and Mena list several other Windows clients that do the same thing for Movable Type, including w.bloggar for Windows and Slug. I’ll give you a report as soon as I’ve tried them.)

Speaking of nice software, I’ve just started using an excellent free boot manager called GAG. I’d been playing with FreeBSD and was unhappy with Boot Easy, the default FreeBSD boot manager. I could have installed Lilo or Grub ports, but GAG is easier to use and works with everything. You install it from floppy so it’s completely operating system independent. I’ve taken to carrying a GAG disk around with me, upgrading the boot managers on other multi-boot systems.

  1. Quote: “I’ve taken to carrying a GAG disk around with me…” Hmm, better not let Martin hear you say that! LOL I can just imagine his response. 😉

  2. I so want a new imac to replace my PC. Only thing holding me back is the software I have purchased in the past. I would hate to try an re-build that library for another operating system. (although I am leaning closer and closer to doing this)

  4. It interesting to see all these new “blog” managers on the go now. I stopped using Blogger back in the day and use my own “homemade” PHP/mySQL apps now. Not for everyone but you really can do anything when you want when write the code yourself. I am geek + I am unemployed = lots of free time 😛

  5. I can see the National Enquirer Headlines Now:
    “TechTV Celebrity Silences Hard Drives All Across America” 🙂
