talkreadand the calendar view to obtain the itemids of her entries. There were too many exceptions that I hadn't taken into account, and the thing flopped, although it was able to mark entries friends-only once it obtained the itemids.
I tried to figure out the LJ protocol and such by poring over the MFC code, but I just lacked the C++/MFC experience to modify it into something to fit this problem. I don't think it would be a difficult problem, if I knew what I was doing.
I was just wondering if anyone out there has done any work on batch editing of entries, or anything else which might lend itself to this. Also, my friend has started a new LJ, but is wondering if it would be possible to have her entries from her old LJ transferred to her new one (and perhaps simultaneously marked friends-only). I told her that this would take an act of the gods (i.e. a sysadmin), and that I wasn't sure if the gods even did things like that for people. It seems like it would be an easy matter for someone with direct access to the database, but I know that things must be busy for the guys at the top.
Any feedback at all would be appreciated. Thanks.
