Comment section improved

As you all know, my comment form has always had a live preview feature that had limited support for [Markdown]0 syntax – which I discussed in a past entry

Recently (a while ago to be exact), I found a somewhat full implementation of [Markdown]0 via JavaScript here. Naturally I decided to integrate it into the live preview function. So I spent the whole practice session of our choir hacking away at the code to fit my needs. Here’s what came out of it:

Don’t mind this post (CSS Test)

I just posted so I can put all the “features” of Markdown, Smartypants, and Bo in one entry on the front page so I can style the site properly without having to change the archive pages just yet. You may disregard this post…

I apologize to the Ecto-supporters out there, but quite frankly, that piece of software you love, can be quite intrusive at times.

Since I heard Ecto was the best offline blog-manager out there, of course I had to see what’s up and give it a try. I’ve been using MarsEdit for the longest time and was quite happy with it save for one problem: You could only keep an offline cache of the last 30 posts you’ve made.

I thought “Hey, since Ecto can do Markdown too, then there’s nothing to lose.” – or so I thought.

A number of things have been happening lately, and only now do I get to post them. I hope i’m able to rememeber them…
