Is anyone else's iLournal back to the 133/only default pic/no mood icon problem that it was like last week? My journal was fine until this morning when I went to post.

Quitting and relaunching iJournal sometimes works, as does logging out of iJournal and logging back in (which is actually only possible if you have another account to log in as by going to the file menu and "log in as..." someone else, then log back in as yourself).

Beyond that, wait for LJ to fix their code (or cryo and others to do an amazing fix around the LJ broken code). :)

I'm pretty sure it's been fixed in the development code (I'm running via a CVS downloaded version), the only thing is they haven't released anything new for iJournal in forever :)

mines been screwed too .. its really annoying.

Phoenix is a carbon app. It's really aimed at people using Mac OS 9.

It's a good client, with all the features of iJournal, some of which are implimented better (friends group editting isn't broken, and you can select multiple groups when making custom security posts). It also supports 'crossposting', which I'm sure is a very popular feature that's never abused.

The music detection isn't as convenient as iJournal's.

It supports more of the posting options than iJournal (iJournal has the no formatting and no comments, Phoenix adds no emails and the backdate option).

I don't think Phoenix has a 'checkfriends' feature.

The biggest thing is that Phoenix supports offline editing and posting :)

It does?

How? (I know that YaxJournal does that, but I can't get it to work from behind a proxy.)
Jan. 20th, 2003 08:45 am (UTC)
D'oh! I meant YaxJournal!
Jan. 20th, 2003 08:53 am (UTC)

I was wondering.

Pity. I'd /really/ like an LJ client with off-line features, but YaxJournal just doesn't want to work, and isn't being developed anymore. :o/

Ya, apparently the developer had a drive issue and lost YaxJournal's code. Personally I wish iJournal would suppor this even if just for offline posting. Maybe not the ability to go back through my journal and edit an old post, but sometimes I'm on the road and it would be nice to queue up a few posts and then have them be uploaded next time I'm on the net. Plus the whole going back and editing old journal entries thing is slooowww in YaxJournal if you have a reasonable number of journal entries.

I might end up having to write my own client when I eventually get a new laptop and go on holiday. But that's some time away anyway. :o)

I have an unreasonable number of journal entries. 6794, with another one in progress. ;o)

Why not contribute to iJournal instead? It's open source. Plus there wouldn't be yet _another_ choice in LJ clients :)
Jan. 20th, 2003 09:15 am (UTC)
Because it would probably be a nasty command-line hack, just for my own use :o)

My programming skills are not impressive, but I could probably knock together an offline entry poster in Python... probably using the old idea I had of making something to parse and post a journal entry from a plain text file.

For the record, I'll chime in on the desire for iJournal to support offline posting.

I commute a lot and that's usually when I find the time to post, but I have to do it in TextEdit and then cut-n-paste to iJ later. Not that it's horrible, but everything else about iJournal makes posting so convenient I just wish it could do that part too. :-)

Queuing of Offline Posts
Queuing of offline posts would definitely rock... I have YaxJournal... and with a laptop, it creates an awesome ability to keep a journal up to date... To bad it won't sync correctly... Tried it just recently with my Critiques of the Super Bowl Commercials and it posted one entry... and it wasn't even the last one!

There should hopefully be a new version coming out Real Soon Now that fixes this. See the past few posts to this community. I'm using a version compiled from the latest version of the source, and it's not doing this any more.
