I'm always looking for applications that allows me to post to my blog easily, even though I am pretty lazy in updating my blogs these days. On my Mac, I use ecto to post new entries almost always. However there are times when I would like to stay on my browser (Firefox) while I publish a quick post. I have tried using the Flock browser just for that purpose, but I am a Firefox person and one thing that is always running on my machine is Firefox, even when Skype (the other application which is mostly on) is not on! This is where ScribeFire comes in. It’s a small Firefox add-on that does BIG things. It lets you post to your blogs (all major blogging platforms supported!) directly from the Firefox (tab or split window) without having to log-on to your blogging platform through the web interface! It is small, fast and gives you enough options.


One option that I would really like on ScribeFire is to be able to add WordPress specific tags and not just the Technorati tags as it currently lets you insert. Other than that ScribeFire is almost perfect! And of course I am posting this from Firefox using ScribeFire!

this ghazal has been ringing in my ears since early in the morning, no idea from where, so i need to get it out of my system before i start my working day, so listened to it a few times while transcribing. and this is my own transcription so there could be errors (i hope not)...you might be able to hear it online but didn't bother searching for the links (i have it on itunes 😛 ). so here it goes...

मेरे करीब ना आअो के मैं शरावी हूँ
मेरा शऊफ जगाअो के मैं शरावी हूँ

जमाने भर की निगाहोंसे गिरचुका हूँ मैं
नजर से तुम न गिराअो के मैं शरावी हूँ

ये अर्ज करता हूँ गिर के खुलूस वालों से
उठा सको तो उठाअो के मे शरावी हूँ

तुम्हारी आँख से भरलूँ सुरूर आँखों में
नजर नजर से मिलाअो के मैं शरावी हूँ
