LiveJournal Client Discussions
I have decided to create a solution that allows you to mass-change your security settings. This is a dedicated client, and allows for more complicated security changes than simply switching public posts to friends only. It also acts as a journal archive in the process.
I called the program LJ-Sec.
It is open source (C#), of course. It's designed for Windows systems, and requires the .NET framework (1.1).
You can download the program, and optionally the source, here.
Here are some features:
Easily switch post group security levels (eg Public to Friends Only)
Perform more complicated custom selections
LJ-Sec automatically creates a journal archive, because that's the way the interface works. So you can preview your older posts too.
Search your archived journal (boolean search capability). You can tag the results as posts you wish to change.
Open source (C#).
This *is* an initial release, and while I haven't had any problems with post eating etc. in tests, I recommend backing up your journal with Livejournal's backup tool before using this program.
Hopefully you enjoy the program. :)
Any suggestions for future improvements will be appreciated. I've already noted that bulk find-and-replace might be a good thing to add to this in the future...
