Synchronize Offline Copy [Feb. 15th, 2006|11:27 am]

Does Logjam's Synchronize Offline Copy function not work with Free accounts? I remember it used to work, but now my list of offline entries is empty, and whenever I tell it to sync them, it blinks the progress screen way too quickly.

I used to have a Paid account, but I let it lapse while LogJam's sync offline option was broken. Now that I've upgraded to 4.5.3 and that function works (Or at least doesn't crash the program), it shows no offline entries. I found the database it seems to use to store them, but that is empty.

Can you do the following and send the output (replacing my username with yours):

% cat ~/.logjam/servers/LiveJournal.com/users/evan/lastsync
2006-01-19 07:58:21
% ls -l ~/.logjam/servers/LiveJournal.com/users/evan/journal.db

Hm, I bet it's upgrade confusion. Can you rm both of those files and try again?

My fault.

Well, I'm just glad it's that easy to fix. I also hope it helps at least identify the bug.

3.x didn't understand Unicode, and then LJ switched to Unicode. You should go to the page mentioned in that error message and follow the instructions. :)

For colors, that's a GTK thing, so you'll probably need to look around on Google with queries like [gtkrc change color].

I think the URL might be cut'n'pasteable from that error dialog.
(If not, that's a bug/unimplemented; I had intended it to be.)

Offline sync always worked for me, and having just upgraded to 4.5.3 it still seems to work. On the other hand, I don't use the database "functionality". (I write it that way since it seems kind of stupid to me to put a backup of a nice text-website into an unreadable binary database - that's making things worse instead of better)

Normally I would agree with you, but the database is not "an unreadable binary", it's an sqlite3 database file. You can type "sqlite3 (database file)" and get right into it. At least, that's how I've done it.

Well, you can't grep(1) it, or sed(1) it, or nsgml(1)/sp(1)/jade(1) it. You always need extra software before you can access it, which is bad in case of emergencies or if you need to transfer the data to another machine. Is it byte-order, word-size, operating system independent? Too many database formats aren't, and the sqlite page only promises the first of the three.
Besides, I just don't like databases.
