I have released ljupdate 0.2.|
ljupdate is a GNOME panel applet that monitors your LiveJournal.com friends list, notifying you when a friend updates.
More information is available at the website.
I like that idea a lot. It's a shame it's a GNOME applet.

mentioned writing a gkrellm plugin.
Or what would you prefer it be? A floating window?
Or maybe have it email you? (Most people have some sort of email-checking capability...)
Personally I'd prefer a plain old floating window in the manner of xbiff, but a gkrellm plugin could work. I just want something I can run under fvwm.
Cool, but um. it would be nice if the applet respected the size of the panel it's in.

Hm... I hadn't considered that.
There are no absolute sizes in the applet; try replacing goat1.xpm and goat2.xpm with smaller versions?
Love the applet... just a couple of things though.
That damned donkey barks at me a lot of times when it shouldn't be. Usually because I've already looked at the page (without clicking on the applet), so it doesn't know. It would be great to be able to right click the applet and say "Reset Alarm" or something like that to get it to do the same thing it does when you double click it... without launching the web browser.
Also, since I constantly have to click on the thing to get it to shut up, I always have a million Friends page windows open. How about if clicking on the thing didn't open the url in a NEW window? Is this something to do with the command line LoserJabber uses to launch the browser? Or is there some sort of technical issue with this?
You da man.

(In case you didn't see:)
There's a "hush" option on it, now. Download it again.
And the new-window stuff is currently hardcoded. Grep the source for "gnome-moz-remote" and change the line accordingly. :)
