LiveJournal Client Discussions
I saw a [somewhat] recent entry about deleting all entires. However, I'd like to make all my entries private and the solutions that were commented on that post only seem to be for PCs. please correct me if i am wrong.
but ugh, please, a client that will do that for macs?
p.s. i use Safari.
Actually, what the person is referring to is probably this program I wrote (LJ-Sec
). It is written in C#.Net.
Because it is .Net, it is best handled on the PC right now. But the open-source Mono.Net project *is* chugging along (including Mono.Net for OS X), and there is a fork of the program that is compatible (theoretically) with Mono.Net.
Just because it is compatible with Mono.Net doesn't mean that running this on the Macintosh is very easy, yet. I know with various Linux flavors, graphics packages may need to be downloaded in addition to the Mono distribution.
I have no access to a Macintosh right now, elsewise I'd work to provide a binary, and installation instructions for OS X machines. For now, the Perl script on OS X is the best bet.
I've learned a long time ago that just because something *claims* to be cross-platform doesn't mean it is without a bit of work. :)
An example: SharpDevelop (what I used to test-compile the Mono fork) doesn't play 100% nice with Microsoft's .NET GUI, and vice versa. With LJ-Sec I had to modify a few things in the menu portion of the code (and a couple other little things) to get it to work. Same CPU, same OS, same platform, same CLR, different GUIs.
