A variety of small changes. Can y'all test this? I'll make it 2.2.0 or something.
I can't even see the differences (unless "Save Entry to File" wasn't there before... I can't remember). Nonetheless... it doesn't crash.
One change I would make... put the new userinfo icon in place of the old one.
Looks good ... test posting was smooth, it "feels" faster but that may be down to other factors. No problems so far. I definitely prefer using this to the web interface (much quicker).
Now, if you can extend it to act as a full browsing client as well, comments can be as easy as journal entries :)
Hrm... When I go to log in, I get:
Server says: HTTP/1.0 501 Method not implemented
But that's because this is what's happening with respect to the network (proxy.noodles being the local web proxy):
damian@thai:~$ sudo tethereal -R 'http.request'
Capturing on eth0
0.465544 thai.noodles -> proxy.noodles HTTP POST http://proxy.noodles:3128/cgi-bin/log.cgi HTTP/1.0
So loserjabber is contacting the proxy on the lj port, then asking for the wrong server, with the wrong port. The source seems to confirm this, but I'll let you do the fixing. =]
One my first attempt to post, I got a "BUG: undefined error" or some such.
Hitting cancel and submit again worked though. I figured it was repeatable and didn't write down the exact message, sorry.
I just saw this as well ("Request failed: BUG: Unknown error"). It seemed to happen at about the same time that LJ got sluggish using my web browser, and when it stopped, the web interface seemed snappy again. Perhaps it's a network timeout or something.
no seg faults here. seems to run really smoothly.
but be sure that if i bump into something, i'll let you know. :)

Do you read your email ?
I hacked together this small patch
a few weeks ago and send you a tiny note
explaining what it is doing ...
I created a few stupid patches in the past, but I got at least a short reply saying why they were declined ...

Re: Do you read your email ?
Ack, I'm really sorry about that. LoserJabber has been on my back burner for a while.
Your patch was fine. I've just changed a lot of things, so it mostly won't apply.
I also don't think modifying LoserJabber to work around your server's limitations (POST->GET) is the right thing to do.
I'll work on LoserJabber some more in a few weeks, and I'll save this mail in my LoserJabber todo list.
Thanks for the patch.
I expected that you'd say that (POST->GET),
but that's OK with me.
I hope the "alternative server/location" part will be in the mainstream soon.
Everything else can be handled with some extra server logic.
We now run 47 (local/intranet) users with LoserJabber and my (very simplistic) PHP-Version.
Maybe it's time to clean this baby up.
Keep up the good work !
