What is LIPIDr?

LIPIDr is yet another desktop blog client. It allows you to publish blog posts from your desktop without using the browser.

It offers some advanced features like an integrated FTP-Uploader or an automatic social bookmark generator.

And best: It’s free!


Why yet another client?

I’m a web addict who runs several blogs. Updating all those blogs is a real pain if you have to use the built in web interfaces.

So I tried many desktop clients like w.bloggar or blogdesk. But they didn’t offer what i wanted. I don’t need fancy wysiwyg-editors nor wordprocessor grade editors. I just need a simple html-editor and comfortable uploading and linking features.

Thus I created LIPIDr. It was intended to be really small and simple – and it is!


LIPIDr offers some nice features to improve your work flow:

      – Fast creation of html-tags by using key shortcuts.


      – No WYSIWYG Editor. Just plain HTML.


      – Generate .flv Embed code with just one Keypress


      – Automatic posting of your new blog entry to mr-wong. (More 2.0 Sites will be supported in the near future.)


      – Built in FTP-Upload client.


      – Management of multiple blogs. Each with its own profile.

System Requirements

All Features are only aviable on WordPress Blogs!
S9Y, Nucleus and Movable Type are also supported but not all features will work!

LIPIDr works on Windows 2k, XP and Vista.
It doesn’t require much memory nor CPU – but it needs an internet connection!

LIPIDr needs:

      – A blog that supports XMLRPC and the metaweblog api. (WordPress, S9Y, MT)


      – Windows 2k/XP/Vista


      – .NET Framework 2.0 installed (will be installed by setup if not found!)


      – 500 MHZ CPU


      – 128 MB RAM


    – An Internet Connection


I’m Moving to Los Angeles

I’m moving to Los Angeles, and I’m very excited about it. I’ll be attending the LA Film School for film and sound editing.

Look, there numerous relocating firms in the Los Angeles area and I’ve called MANY MANY places to see which one was the best.

Here are some tips for moving to Los Angeles that may help you along your way.

Keep Your Stuff Together!
Insist on maintaining stuff together when you or the movers are loading boxes. Maintain bookends with books, light bulbs with lights, as well as expansion cables with home appliances. Small, loose parts can be affixed to the item they come from with tape or put in tiny envelopes– to keep photo hooks with images, rack braces with a cabinet, an unique wrench and also screws with the wall surface device.

Fill Up That Suitcase!

Fill up travel luggage as well as duffle bags with apparel, sheets, towels, and also paper goods. Even for local moves you’ll be able to rapidly find your navy travel suitcase holding your preferred sweaters, whereas “Box # 189” might stay elusive for days.

Individual Plastic boxes.
Use brilliantly colored storage space lug boxes, one for each and every person. Let each family member fill theirs with products they’ll want ‘right away’ in the brand-new residence– a set of sheets, a towel, a couple of expansion cables, a phone, nightlights, address book, pens as well as paper, secrets, kleenex, and also travel cosmetic situation, and so forth. Seriously, you can even rent plastic bins so you don’t waste paper boxes.

Find a Specialized Piano Mover

I’m taking my piano with me so it’s best to find a local piano mover in los angeles such as Piano Movers HQ that knows what they are doing. These guys are seriously the best.

Relocating may not be the most fun you’ve ever had, but planning ahead will go a long method toward making the process bearable. Trust me on this one.
