I spent many hours today bending a Movable Type plugin to my will so I could send an email to an address and have it automatically post to the site. Somewhere in the 3rd or 4th hour I briefly wondered why this was suddenly so important to me, but couldn’t give up the fight to a stupid little Perl script. Bend! Break! Submit to my will!

After I finally got it to do what I wanted, I stumbled across a program that lets me post from my desktop, which is really all I wanted in the first place. It took about 3 minutes to install, and works flawlessly. Naturally.
