Posting comments from outside LJ? [Oct. 26th, 2004|08:30 pm]

Hi everyone!

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so please forgive me for the hassle :)
My name is Math, I've been an LJ user for the last two years, and I have a little problem.

Let me explain.

In the firm where I work, the admins have decided to block access to LJ altogether, which pisses me off to no end.
Using the Protocol docs, I managed to hack a simple PHP script allowing me to post entries, but I still miss one of the major aspects of the LJ experience : posting and replying to comments.

So, my question: would there be any way to do so from outside LJ?
Of course, that would require copy/pasting hidden attributes from the real LJ form, but that's not a problem.
Basically, is there a way to send data to www.livejournal.com in a way similar to using the postevent Flat Protocol mode to post comments?

Thanks in advance!

I'm confused - when people block access to a site, they usually block an entire domain name (e.g. *.livejournal.com). How is it that you can post to livejournal by using the flat protocol?

And why not just use an anonymizer service like guardster?

Please disregard point one, I didn't realize you had made a PHP script.

I used the flat protocol in a simple PHP page, hosted on a server which is not blacklisted. The actual connection happens between this server and LJ, so no problem with the big guys :)

And, well, that's a good question.
The answer would be : I wasn't aware that such services existed.
That is something I will try tomorrow, thanks :)
