Bloggeratto reports on the latest Phydeaux3 greasemonkey script, and 'tis a doozie. We're waiting, as you know, for the ability to write a post in Blogger, save it on a Sunday, and tell it to publish itself on a Wednesday. We're not there yet, but Phydeaux has boosted one of the existing solutions (to manually change the date on the post when you publish) by extending the range of available dates via Greasemonkey to be infinite! Now you can pick any 4-digit year that floats your boat, & publish from there. A highly specific niche, to be sure, but an interesting tweak too. Cool.
The mainstream solution for automatically post-dated publication comes from Improbulus, and uses EMailSchedule to time the posting of content via mail. I wonder if you can tell it to send you an e-mail from 1947?
