Wow, is it just me or does the new version of [ecto](http://ecto.kung-foo.tv/) fly!?! I’m used to clicking the Publish button and waiting while it goes through the motions of setting the categories and posting to my blog. I didn’t change anything on my server (I don’t think) and it’s pinging the same sites as it always has. Yet, now posting with ecto is taking a fraction of the time it used to.
I’ve all but given up blogging from anything but a browser on a PC. All of the clients are terrible. Ecto for Windows means well, and the developer is a nice guy. I paid for a license that I don’t use all that often. The versions I’ve tried are just too buggy for regular use and they’re missing some of the finer touches that the Mac version has.
