my ijournal has been having major server problems lately. it seems i can never post when i want to, and it lasts for hours sometimes.

is this common? is this happening to anyone else?

iJournal and OSX.2 issues

I like iJournal. Under OSX.1, it worked great. But ever since this computer got upgraded to X.2, it's been giving me trouble.

Symptoms include:

  • Really slow startup, on the order of a few minutes.
  • Get the spinning disk of doom a lot.
  • It has trouble getting my Tunes from iTunes, even if I manually click on the Tunes button.
  • Losing its brain about connecting to LJ (a lot of 'Server Problem, try again shortly' messages - which aren't true, since I am concurrently viewing it in my web browser!) The only solution to which seems to be 'quit; restart iJournal;' which is a pain, given the slowness to start up.

I tried removing it and (re)installing the latest version, no help.

iJournal ignores System wide Preferences/iTunes 3.0.1 problem

I noticed that iJournal 1.49 completely ignores my preferences for my preferred browser, and with items like WindowShadeX and FruitMenu, it says that the demos have expired, when in fact I've had them registered for months.

I don't know anything about Cocoa, so I can't suggest a fix.

Also, everytime an iTunes upgrade comes out iJournal has to be updated in order to recognize the new version in order to grab the current song playing. Would it be possible add a preference allowing a user to choose which version of iTunes iJournal points at?

...okay, this is really weird, but I just noticed that now it works. I guess iTunes has to be open and playing when iJournal launches in order to update the pointer to iTunes. I've guess I hadn't had these circumstances since I upgraded to 3.0.1, so I thought it was broken.

Overall, iJournal makes using LiveJournal a breeze. I make a lot more entries because of this puppy. Thanks iJ developers!
