Back in the Saddle with Live Writer

Whew.. I’ve missed this program a lot since losing my VMWare Vista client.  I’ve just downloaded and installed Windows 7 on VM and it seems to be working.  I’ll have another blog entry about that.  But for now, I think the most important thing that help resolve some of my networking issues with both Vista and Windows 7 clients is switching to NAT addressing rather than bridging with the new version of VMWare Fusion – 2.0.1.

I now simultaneously run a client VM and Mac software at the same time without losing any networking on the Mac side.  Entirely too bizarre and I’m happy just to have a work around. 

Looks like they also upgraded the software since the last time I used it.  Looks like we’re up to Build 14.
