How do you fetch a friend history (of people that have been unfriended)? [Dec. 20th, 2004|09:44 am]

I was looking at these two quizzes, the LJ stalker one and the friend-o-meter one. It seems they fetch the names of people I have friended in the past. Some of the people listed have never commented in my journal and aren't mentioned anywhere in it, leading me to believe this somehow fetches a friending history. How does it do it?

Thanks for that information. I haven't written any "bots", but figured that the rules for them would be based on "common sense" and "politeness".

The only program I've considered writing was a program to cache my LJ entries in a local directory for indexing purposes. It would only need to pull posts I'd made that are newer than the latest post in the cache.

I created a concordance-style index for my journal, but the post-gathering was done by hand and is not automated. I'd like to automate it evenutally, though.
