lj_clients

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.

mode:syncitems
ver:1
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?

Ta!

(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...)

It's an hour or so before LJ times out.

Just increment the time by a second. Make it 00:00:01, then 00:00:02, ...
