It feels good to be back after a break of 5 days, but in those five days I had a lot of work to do, including finding and moving to a new Apartment to live in. Everything went smoothly and here I am back again blogging from my new apartment which has much more light and is spacious enough to setup a desk so that I can blog comfortably.
Getting back to business, Window Live Writer one of the most widely used blog editor (and my favorite too) has released a new Technical update which includes features like image cropping and tilting, more border styles for your images and support for centering images.
