Is there an LJ Client that will upload a post at a set time?

Specifically I'd like to be able to "pre-record" posts and have them auto-update daily.

Thanks :)

I thought about cobbling together something in perl using LJ::Simple. I got about halfway through, realized I never wrote anyway, and then got distracted by something shiny. It wouldn't be hard, though.

You could use a command line client (jlj, or write your own with lj::simple) and then use "at" command.

Semagic will allow you to save entries for posting at a later date. I've done this quite often and love it!

Would it then post them for me, or would I need to start semagic and post it?

Unfortunately, you'd have to leave Semagic running, or just let it post the entry the next time you open the program. I leave my computer running (not the monitor, takes up too much energy and gives off too much heat) all the time since it takes so long for the computer to boot up (I only get small snippets of time at the computer). Because of this, I let Semagic run all the time in the background (it hangs out in the systray).

HTH!

That is my fallback idea, but I'd have to leave a machine running to make it happen ~ and I'm not quite willing to buy a UPS for home yet.
