LiveJournal Client Discussions
ljArchive now supports downloading/browsing/searching comments. In a nutshell:|
Here are some screenshots of the new functionality:The web site for downloading ljArchive is here. Those of you with monster journals with 10,000 comments or more, are especially welcome to try this new version, and please let me know how it performs :)
- Added support for downloading/browsing/searching/exporting comments.
- Added a new plugin that provides comment analysis, both how many comments received from each user and given to each user
- Entries and comments both displayed in a single view, via the updated HTML template system.
- Updated loading/saving code - new file format is about 35% smaller and loads approximately 6x faster than the old format.
- Various bug-fixes from user feedback.
This is making me nuts! I've uninstalled and reinstalled. I've reinstalled the .Net framework and I still get the same error message (only now I get it faster!)... I hate to wipe out my db of entries and I cannot imagine that's causing a problem. Suggestions? I really want to have this at home...

I'll have to take a look at it this weekend - the exception info you've provided should be all I need.
The client doesn't yet provide very informative error messages - ones like what you've received will eventually be paired down to things I can control (like a bug in the software) and things I can't control (like livejournal being down), with appropriate messages for each.
In the mean-time, thanks for being patient. You'll hear from me soon!
Now that I know you are on it, I got patience to burn. Plus I've got my copy at work for emergencies :)
I did suspect the culpret was LJ so I waited until I could get a good response from LJ for a sustained time and tried LJArchive then but I got the same error.
Turns out I am genetically unable to leave anything alone :)
I sync'd up my work version and then brought the xja file home. I replaced the xja that I had on my home computer with the one from work and it loaded fine. So, I clicked on 'sync' and guess what??!!! It Sync'd!!! Brought in the new items since the work archive was created!!!
It's fixed! So, it just wasn't happy with the old xja! Wild, eh? I'm such a happy camper.

Re: New Clues
That's great! I'm glad it sorted itself out, because every analysis I could do pointed at it being some kind of server glitch.
I'll have to keep an eye out for it and hope the issue doesn't come up again in the future.
