checkfriends mode

Hi, I am developing a new LJ client (currently named "LiveJournalXP") in C# for the Win32 platform. Development is going well I have most basic functionality implemented (I am using it to send this post!).

The issue I have at the moment is that I am adding the timer to check for friends updates using the checkfriends mode of the protocol. However, the return I get seems rather strange. I get no value back for lastupdate and the delay interval returned is 36000 seconds, am I really only supposed to be checking for friends updates every 10 hours! 10 minutes I could understand. I have yet to actually see a value of 1 to be returned in new yet either, even though there have been journal updates.

Is this functionality broken in the protocol atm? If so I might look at implementing it another way (perhaps d/ling the RSS feeds for all the users friends and doing some manipulation myself).

Any help anyone can give me would be much appreciated.

I should also have an early alpha build of my client soon. I will post a link to it once I feel it is ready.
