Technically Speaking All in on IT

I have been using Windows Live Writer since it was released (sorry BlogJet!) and have been generally very happy with it. I have two wishes for anyone on the product team that may be listening out in the blogosphere:

  1. Add a way to export the blog account settings. This will allow me to easily get my accounts back in when I reinstall my OS. If you can export the preferences (and all my pings) that would be great too!
  2. Add a menu entry to check for updates to the program. I hate having to depend on blog entries to find out when a utility has released an update. This software isn't major enough to hit the mainstream blogs and I don't want to track a blog for each piece of software I use on a regular basis. Let it check for me in the background when I fire it up.

Well, it's only a small consolation, and won't help with the ping servers, but when GWB is moved to subText you'll be able to configure via RSD.

Just your URL, username and password.

Plus, you'll also have the newMediaobject functionality so you won't have to worry about configuring an FTP entry for pictures...

That's gotta help a little...
