LogJam 4.0.1 is up at the usual place.

Summary of changes from 4.0.0 (full ChangeLog):

  • Features
    • Better time picker.
    • GUI server manager / server selection at runtime.
    • De-linebreak tool.
  • Bugfixes
    • Save entry date when saving entries locally.
    • Don't immediately relogin when you log out.
    • Don't segfault in poll creator.


I also rebuilt the Microsoft Windows version. I wanted to use the latest build of GTK but it kept locking randomly when I clicked check boxes, so I reverted back to the version from around September.

What can I say but...

You rock man. Log Jam works perfectly for what I need. I look forward to any improvements you come up with!

Music command line option

I suggest a command line option for setting the currently playing music, so that I can alias:

% logjam -m `script saying what is playing`

it would be nice for us that don't use XMMS.

Re: Music command line option

What sort of music program / script are you using?
Would it make sense for the "autodetect" button (which is normally next to the music field, if you compiled in XMMS support) to work with an arbitrary script like yours?

Re: Music command line option

I use moosic, which runs as a daemon, and have a script that shows what it is doing for the moment.

I guess mapping the auto-detect button to an arbitrary command would work as well. But I think it should be possible to have the field filled automatically some way.

Re: Music command line option

Oh, neat... I've been working on a project with similar functionality to moosic, actually.

I was always annoyed when the Windows client would fill in the music for me, so I figured clicking a button once before posting wouldn't be too bad. Do you think it'd be better to fill it in by default and let the user erase it if they wanted?

Re: Music command line option

I only know that _I_ always want to fill in the music field, as long as I am listening to something. Another option? LogJam's preferences dialog isn't exactly crammed, so I don't think it would hurt.

You can check out Moosic here. I'm having some issues with it, so I am thinking of making a clone. In the mean time, I am relying on a set of zsh-aliases to control it.

Re: Music command line option

The functionality to specifiy a music command is now in CVS: read more.

Re: Music command line option

Another thing that bugs me with LogJam is the login dialog that pops up at startup. Beeing a dial-up user I usually write my entry before I connect to the net. One could expect the "Don't automatically login" preference to suppress this dialog. But that does not appear to be the case.

Re: Music command line option

I'm going to make this a toplevel post because there are a few issues with it.
