Edit Event Workaround [Jul. 29th, 2002|11:49 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


So I'm trying to change the security of posts en masse (all entries, by month, or by day). The problem is that it looks like I need 2 server hits per post, minimum (more if you keep in mind that half the time I get ServerProtocolViolations -- according to the .NET docs, "The server response was not a valid HTTP response."). If someone is changing 500 entries, and each server hit takes 5 seconds, that adds up pretty quickly. Now imagine if that was 5000.

What are the hits?
1.) Get the itemid using getevent (displayitemid is the one that export.bml gives, and that is (itemid + a random number) * 256, so you need to get the actual id).
2.) The actual editevent hit.

Does anyone know of a workaround for this? Is there one? I'd like to think that changing a journal's security (something I've heard a lot of calls for) wouldn't require running the program for 15 straight hours to do it.

What kind of an interface would you like? A GIMP like interface? with multiple windows floating around on the desktop, all launched from the sytem tray? or an MDI? something else?

I'll be releasing the backend of the client in a day or two, its almost done so you all can write your own GUI's if you don't like the one i'll be writing.

zebjournal is a client supporting infinite multiple concurrent logins across any different LJ based sites.
