An aside… I give up….

OK, while it is a cool idea to write, edit and manage this blog entirely from my iPhone, it turns out that it is not (yet) as feasible as I had hoped. You might be thinking, “Ah, ah… that virtual keyboard has done you in”. Well, no, that’s not it. “Typing” an entry isn’t too bad, in a future posting I’ll give my comments on the virtual keyboard. The problem is editing. No copy, paste; difficultly “navigating” a lengthy text field. But again I’ll save more of that for a future post. Maybe part of the problem is WordPress, maybe part is my ignorance of “blogging standards”, maybe part of it is iPhone’s Safari. Whatever, it became just too tedious to enter my second, rather lengthy post. Hopefully, this will improve overtime.

For now I’ll post what I can via the iPhone, but will revert to my MacBook to do any “heavy lifting”. Oh, which brings up the point, WordPress doesn’t even work correctly in Safari! Well, I guess it isn’t so much WordPress as it is TinyMCE, the WYSIWYG editor that WordPress (and many others) use. A brief scan of WordPress’s and TinyMCE’s FAQ and support pages indicates that this is something the Safari developers need to address. Since I’m currently using the Beta of Safari 3, hopefully this will also improve….

Ahhhhh…. The bleeding edge.
