To anyone who subscribes via an RSS feed reader, I profoundly apologise for the multiple publishing of the last entry, which I think got posted about 7 or 8 times. I thought I’d deleted them all, but they still managed to make it through to my feed reader.
For what it’s worth, you can blame Microsoft, as I use their dedicated blog writing program, Microsoft Live Writer, for offline composition. It returned an error message when I tried to post, but they clearly went through unhindered.
If anyone knows of a good offline blog writer, preferably open source, and bearing in mind that I’ve already tried Scribefire, please let me know.
