i'm at a good stopping point on my MFC LiveJournal client for now... two people are using it already (Blythe and Megan), both of who before tried the VB client but had the damn thing always crashing on them. VB sucks. the new MFC version is gonna rock... the infrastructure i've got so far rocks, so adding history, editing past items, editing friends, and browsing the comment boards is all going to be easy. the only thing slowing me back is having to consult the big fatty "Programming Windows with MFC" book every 15 minutes... it's getting better though, it used to be every 5 minutes. :-) Anyway, I'm going to go take a shower now and then come back and program for a bit.
