Not only was it successful, but I've discovered Applets! Now I'm blogging, through Remote Desktop, from a button on my taskbar (bar across bottom of desktop), without any difficulty. Very nice - I really like this tool, it's exactly what I've been looking for.
I've also got a funny screenshot for you. I just grabbed this off my desktop and dragged it into my post, so we'll see how well it uploads to Blogger. ;)
Take a look at the last line of the description. Although monkey-bubble is a decent game, in the vein (though not nearly as good as) Snood, the description by the open-source authors displays one of the weaknesses of most linux geeks. :-D
