There are a few things that still need changing, but the basic functionality is there(ignore the picture menu on the bottom, that feature isn't implemented yet).

What it can do:
Post an entry.
Attach mood and music information.
Post to any community you have access to.
Set security levels for your post.

Thats it for now. The name is going to be changed as soon as I come up with a better one, the current one is the name I chose to focus development, but it has to change to avoid trademark issues.

Need to do some work on the GUI. It sucks, I know, but I was more concerned with getting the functionality right than making it pretty. Also need to find out if any of the combo boxes for Perl/Tk on CPAN have GPL compatible licenses, if so I'm replacing the dropdown menus.

Other than the userpic feature, what other client functions should I most focus on implementing for version 2.0?

Testing on OSX and *nix's of all stripes would be appreciated- it works great on WinXP, but thats all I have access to right now for testing.

Download my client here

I made it a zip file,and it downloads fine now. just unzip it and run it. It has the #!/usr/bin/perl for running on *nix systems.

Oh... forgot to mention dependencies in the original post. It requires the Tk module and XMLRPC::Lite.

Odd... the site works for me. If you can give me some info on your browser, os, any security settings you have that could interfere, I'll see if I can fix it.

Here is a direct link to the zip file. Unzip, run the .pl file, and have at it.

It may have something to do with my IE settings... although it isnt usually a problem. I use an application that blocks cookies without my consent. I also dont allow active X scripts to run without my consent.

This site didnt prompt me though which is the puzzling part. Anyway, thanks for the URL, i got the file now.

Now produces a 403 Forbidden error (both links, the main page and the one in the comments section) - browser is Mozilla Firebird/0.7.1 on an eMac running OS 10.2.8, if that matters.
