Posthaste and Markdown integration

Just a short note to say that I have just finished integrating Posthaste plugin by Jon Smajda to this blog. The plugin allows me to have a simple post box right in the homepage every time I log in. While there is certainly no problem for me to write in the WordPress admin page, I just want to have an alternative writing environment where there are no visual distractions, thus making posting process simpler and more inviting.

Below is the plugin in action:

post from the home page!

Besides, Markdown is now also enabled in the comments thanks to this plugin so readers can post links and format their remarks without having to write html.
