Pamphlet Demo

I have upload a demo version of Pamphlet, the client application that I use to maintain this site and Just download the zip file and extract the contents into a directory. Double-click on PamphletDemo.exe to run the application.

N.B.This is a .Net application and you will need to have the .Net Framework installed. The easiest and safest way to get the .Net Framework is to use the Windows Update feature. You can get the .Net Framework for Windows 98, ME, 2000, NT 4.0, and XP.

This is a demo version of Pamphlet that is hard-coded to work with and Please feel free to try all the features. The security is locked down on the application so don't worry about posting spurious 'test' messages to my sites, you can't.

Is that the definitive GUI, or do you think to make some changes? It seemed to me way too similar to a web page, with frames and menu on the left: I did not like its feel very much. On a different note, do you think a RESTLog tool like Pamphlet would ever be integrated with a News Aggregator tool like for example Syndirella? I would like to have a single context where I can read news and do weblogging from.

I'm not familiar with the inner workings of Syndirella but since both Aggie and Pamphlet are both .Net that would make it easier to fold them into a single program. Feel free to use Pamphlet for a base of such a program. When I clean up and release the source code that is. As for the look and feel, I am pretty partial to it, so I don't think it's going to change much. There are a couple of repetitive actions that need shorter paths, but the main navigation works for me.
