Drivel

OK, here’s one with drivel. I do like it, but I have a couple of gripes.

  • First problem: I was hopelessly confused by the login screen. The type of journal seems to be locked on livejournal, as the drop-down menu for journal types is inexplicably disabled until you enter a username. -1 for usabilty

  • Second problem: Useless stripping of trailing slash, which mangled my xmlrpc URL. Error 301 was ignored, which makes sense since it’s a post and all, but I couldn’t log in. It mangled my URL then choked on the error :-/

  • Third problem: didn’t want to download my recent posts. Although there might be a misunderstanding about just what “recent” means.

  • Fourth problem: Doesn’t let me choose post status anywhere. And there’s nowhere I can find to choose text filters. This is more of a feature request, really.

  • Fifth problem: craps out after posting, probably because it keeps mangling the trailing slashes from my URLs. Is there an RFC somewhere that says that POSTS can’t end with slashes? Nobody tell the Django folks.

Well, maybe it’ll at least let me post to my blog from work every now and then.

"... trailing slashes"

Sounds like a fencing term.
