I use an older Mac G4 as my workhorse, which normally does just fine for me. Running Panther was a bit of a strain but it practically sings under Tiger… until I try to use Dashboard.
It’s a little slow the first time I launch it (per reboot) and I don’t know who would want to use the widgets that support drag and drop (such as Transmit’s FTP widget - I just use their nifty desktop script for quick uploads) because switching in and out of Dashboard is such a strain on my system.
Anyway, I’m posting this entry using Blogger’s Widget. I can see how this is useful for quick posts. It’s many less clicks to jump into Dashboard and just start typing, rather than open a new tab in Safari and navigate through Blogger’s home page to get to the “new post” section.
I’ll still need to go online to create new posts that are larger and contain images and links. Such as the next one I’m about to start…
