Grrr! [Dec. 1st, 2006|10:19 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


I'm learning how my adopted program works, so I keep tweaking, adding some System.out.println's and re-running it - but the LJ servers don't like that!
I even tried to logout - but there's not even a command to logout - that would close a session! The LJ servers just say "No!"

I'm sending out the following to http://www.livejournal.com/interface/flat - to get a list of things that need changing.

lastsync:1900-01-01 00:00:00

After a few calls it started responding with :
Client error: Client is making repeated requests. Perhaps it's broken?

Yes I'm making repeated requests! But I'm testing the program. I even made another test account which worked for about 4 calls, and then started sending out the error message.

So I tried the old one again, thinking it was time based, I'm sure it was >5 minutes before I used it again, and I'm STILL getting the error message on the original test account.

Is there anything I can do to override this error message? If not - how long does it take before LJ considers that I'm not making repeated requests?


(I was just at the point of removing "Noprop=1" from the original code to see what new things got returned, and I've not found out yet! Hopefully when I've ironed this developmental flow bug out, I can actually handle the properties...)

HideJournal update! [Dec. 1st, 2006|11:14 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Despite still not knowing exactly what's going on with the dataflow of the program, I've updated HideJournal to be compatible with Tags!


I cut a few corners getting it to work - like not investigating the raw data that was returned from the LJ servers! I only started working on it 2 days ago.
I was lazy and just tried to infer what was going on with the Sync items + post updater + hashing and parsing algorithms. My head hurts - because the original author went to some lengths to make the parsing of the file comprehensive and I had to figure out what was going on.

Anyway - if any kind souls would like to run it against some big journals, it would be appreciated!

I made two small test journals to try it out on, and it worked flawlessly...:


If you think it's useful - could you let other peeps on LJ know about it? I know when I wanted to make my journal friends only it was hell trying to find a program to automate it.
