LiveJournal schtuff [Jul. 18th, 2000|05:04 pm]

[Current Mood |tiredtired]
[Current Music |4. Beethoven / Von Karajan - Symphony No 3 in E flat Major]

The new LiveJournal for Windows client kicks ass.... plain and simple. Every reported bug has been fixed, and tons of features have been added: current mood, current music (which is optionally auto-detected from WinAMP), don't auto-format, and a bunch of other minor stuff....

But, best of all .... I just found out about PiMP ... damn Nullsoft is one cool company. I'd been looking for a free Win32 installer for a long time... the fact that it makes the .exe from a text script is just ideal.

When I release it (tonight?) I'll also update the web update client to do all the same fun stuff.

wow

Winamp hacks are very cool, and PiMP looks good, too.

Blah, I need to hack up some LoserJabber so it's more impressive, again.

Re: New Client

When Evan or I finds time. Or until *you* do it. It's open source, ya know? Send us patches! :)

Re: New Client

Tempting...although I'd have to learn GTK first. That's something I've been meaning to do for a long time but haven't actually had the time to sit down and do. If school work permits, I may do so...

Re: New Client

Hey, I learned GTK in like a day just for LoserJabber.... it's not hard.

Re: New Client

Cool. Maybe I'll get started now. I have a couple of hours until class...are the tutorials on gtk.org the best place to start?

I suppose it would be silly to ask for a Mac update as well...

Re:

Either:

a) send me a Mac. never had one, never programmed one, never really used one.

b) write one yourself. the specs are all in the developer area.
