Hello (or is that 'Doh!' )?

I just downloaded the latest version of the client, which looks great, but (because of my setup), I'm having a few problems...I'm running OS X, but sitting behind a firewall that requires a username and password and I don't seem to be able to add those (is there a way I can add them to the proxy address string?). And I can't quit the client before I log in (which I can't do, see above): so I have to force quit.

Am I doing something wrong or are these known issues?

What I can see from the logs and the site, it looks really promising and I'm looking forward to see how it develops. (FWIW, interface/HCI stuff is part of my dayjob, so if there's something I can contribute....)

Interesting, how does the interchange between a web browser and the proxy normally go?

ie Browser makes HTTP request (a complex cgi POST for LiveJournal)

...then what?

I'd like to add this capability to yaxjournal, which you might like to give a try.

Proxy
I'm using a MS Proxy 2, which I think, just gets passed the username and password in the GET command, although I'm not sure of the syntax. Most proxies in a biz environment use auth., so it's certainly worth having. I connect with USB ADSL at home (which has no OS X drivers, yet), so my only way of connecting to the internet from an OS X application is at work through the proxy.

This is a socks 4 or 5 thing that you have to log into?

Proxy
Hi cryo, no, it's the MS Proxy v2.

Re: Proxy
Hmm. How does IE or Mozilla (carbon) work with it? Is there some setting you do on in the system preferences to specify the proxy login/password? I didn't see anything there except the ability to specify an http proxy, but no login/password option... so I'm a little confused :)

Re: Proxy
You set the username and pwd within the options of the browser: browsers work with many types of http proxy, so I'm guessing there must be a standard response. I read somewhere (but of course can't find it) that it's simply sent with the GET. I'll take a look...

You should check out their latest album, just released, Hot Shots II, which is mellower and more consistent.
