Fun with Word?

Maybe? I suppose this could be useful if the template can be tweaked for different content types in WordPress.

Trying out Open Live Writer

This is Open Live Writer, an open source fork of the MSFT blog editor Live Writer.

Open Live Writer is like Word for your blog. Open Live Writer is a powerful, lightweight blog editor that allows you to create blog posts, add photos and videos then publish to your website. You can also compose blogs posts offline and then publish on your return. Open Live Writer works with many popular blog service providers such as WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, Moveable Type, DasBlog and many more.

It is a desktop app that gets along well, so far, in Windows 10. I’m sure it’d work just fine in earlier versions of Windows too.

Something interesting from eLangdell.

January 6, 2013

“We begin with a hypothetical court opinion.  Suppose that plaintiff [P] brings a tort suit in federal district court under diversity of citizenship jurisdiction.  The governing statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1332(a), requires that the “matter in controversy” must exceed $75,000.  P in the complaint asks for $85,000 in compensatory damages.  Defendant [D] moves under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(1) to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction on the ground that P will be unable to convince the jury to award more than $75,000.  The district judge denies the motion, writing “The face of the complaint controls the amount in controversy.”  The opinion also notes “Interest and costs cannot be added.”  Finally, the judge ruminates about the increasing federal caseload and concludes “The attorney for any plaintiff who files an inadequate amount diversity claim should be subject to Federal Rule 11 sanctions.”

This is a note.
