From Windows Live Writer X to Open Live Writer: Temporarily Unavailable :(

somehow not really used to

blogging from built-in editor from Blogger.com

as I have been using Windows Live Writer

for the past.... at least 5 years?

since yesterday

the first reaction was

of course, a little worried

then went online and took a look

 

"you-are-not-alone" that kind of case

keep me at ease

feeling assured that

so it wasn't my problem

 

obviously Windows Live Writer

despite being really blogger-friendly

for this really small group of users like me

it has not been updated

in other words

abandoned by Windows since 2012

 

doesn't matter if it has not been updated

yet it is just as reliable

until yesterday

 

so what happened was

2 days ago

Windows have officially made

Windows Live Writer open-source

 

as far as I understand

that means it is no longer under Windows

but an open freeware

(used to be a freeware too)

run and managed by a group of

non-profit folks

 

currently known as Open Live Writer

Dot Net Foundation: Open Live Writer

 

okay so I move on to download a copy from

Open Live Writer . org

 

yet...

I can't even manage to

enter the program itself

stuck downright outside

during the configuration process

went on the Forum

other folks complained about that too

again, that put me at ease at

Git Hub forum: No connection possible with Blogger?

 

some authentication issue

between Open Live Writer and Blogger

and someone is actually fixing it

Convert Google Blogger ClientLogin to OAuth 2.0

 

used to experience this with

Windows Live Writer too

but it was soon resolved

back in May

Blogger Fix: Blogging Tool Block

 

rawrrr..

so its' a Catch-22 situation

the old version is no longer available

yet the new version is not ready

 

till then

can only hang around

drafting in Windows Live Writer

 

wanna update a few really

delicious Wang Kai shoot actually

those will have to wait for now

biggest addiction ever!!
