In Chris Pratley’s article The best ways to show OneNote to others, I found the idea of storing blog articles in OneNote. Somehow that never occurred to me 😃 So I thought I’d employ the IE2OneNote power toy to copy all my current articles to OneNote to start with. Several problems with this: first, the format of a web page is completely lost when doing that. The power toy simply dumps the textual context of a page, plus the images, into a OneNote page sequentially. Sometimes, I do use tables in my blog articles and I also use formatting for my code samples, so that’s really ugly. The second thing is, IE2OneNote hangs up Internet Explorer reliably when trying to send my article Simulating object properties with ITypedList and custom PropertyDescriptors to OneNote. Most other articles I tried don’t show that problem, I have no idea why this happens… Now, the question is, are there alternatives? Maybe even for Firefox instead of IE?
Sorry, this blog does not support comments. Why not?
I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
