Release of the new Skids live album

Today sees the release of the Skids live album, which is something, IMHO, is long over due and a very welcome addition to any CD collection.  If you are not familiar with the band then they were a punk rock/new wave 4 piece from Dunfermline in Scotland and founded by Stuart Adamson (guitar, vocals), Richard Jobson (vocals), Tom Kellichan (drums) and Willie Simpson (bass).  One of their songs “Saints are coming” was recently covered by U2 and Green day which kinda led to the unearthing and release of this live album.  I only ever saw the band live once during Stuart Adamson’s tribute concert (after he committed suicide) where is son Calum took his fathers place and the original line up where back after a long time away —- increadble concert and sorry I never saw them before then.

Test from live writer to my new wordpress blog

It is nice when technology just works and I seem to be experiencing this right now ……. just setting up Live Writer beta to talk to this new blog and I have to say there has been no kicking or screaming.

From Live Writer menu bar choose WebLog, “Add WebLog account”

Simply go through the wizard prompts and tell Live Writer your blog details

The template which is used from wordpress on live writer has some overlaps on the title bar, but it all looks good.

Live Writer is certainly turning out to be a very VERY good free Microsoft product and with the TAG intergration it is damn easy to build blog entries.

I know the Live Writer is not the only blog software out there by any means, but it just feels nice to use.
