ecto

I'm trying out ecto as a blog posting tool at the moment. Right now any posts I make usually go through the web interface at Blogger, but the lack of both an built in spellchecker and photo uploading tool make it pretty time-consuming to do updates. Enter ecto - basically a text editor that has hooks into the various RPC apis available. As usual, I'm trying to make things as brain-dead simple as possible using AppleScript. Right now I've got a script going to look up various words in the tomes of information (such as Google, UrbanDictionary and Wikipedia). So I can write a word like "absure" and within a few clicks, have a working definition linked up for it.
