okay, i've been programming way too much and doing homework way too little. but alas, i have finished the first functioning version of my MFC LiveJournal client for Windows, download it here. it's actually pretty damn cool ... it doesn't suck like the VB version did. a lot more functionality is on the way (the foundation is pretty nice, and that takes the longest time). i'm gonna do some homework for the next day or so, give me feedback, and i'll add more stuff later.
