Browse with Flock and post to Radio with built in weblog editor!

Flock is a neat new browser. It has some nice features like integrated support for and flickr. It also has a built-in weblog editor that supports the Metaweblog API, which means that you can use it to post to your Radio weblog.

Here's a screen grab of my settings. NOTE: The screen shot URL got cut off. Be sure to enter this URL:

Need to figure out what your username and password is? Visit this Prefs page while Radio is running on your computer.

PS - Flock is in alpha or beta mode. There is a lot to be done. You cannot currently change the name of your weblog (at least I can't). Also, you can't set the category. Not a big deal since you can always visit the Radio home page and set a category from there.

Enjoy your flocking radio experience.

Radio UserLand: The Weblog Server That Lives On YOUR Machine

Dave Winer: "Ben and Mena Trott explain why they're having performance trouble on their Typepad service. Maybe our theory about putting the content management on the workstation wasn't so bad after all. That's the approach Radio took in 2002. After a while it became clear people preferred to have someone else manage the content management for them."

That's why I moved away from Manila and switched to Radio UserLand when it first came out. I was tired of paying hosting fees and I wanted to keep my files on my computer. Putting a server on my computer and having it upload rendered files to my ftp server was revolutionary. I no longer needed to be connected to the net to create weblog posts. Imagine that. I just find it hard to believe that this model still isn't very popular. I'll bet it gets more popular as the years tick by though.

Step Two. Now What?

Thanks to Steve and Andy and Jack for their help with my Radio problem.

Steve said, "go into and see if there's an entry in that table for that ".Trashes" file" and Andy said, "Following on Steve's comment you can use the findString script in workspace.userLand to search on ".Trashes"

So that's what I did. Here's the result of the find. Now what?

Help me fix this Radio UserLand Error: Access to ".Trashes" was Denied
