Web-ComicClient Version 1.0

Since this post already went in LJ_Biz and is mostly relating to the people trying to build the comic community I won't duplicate it here. But if you're interested in the new client, feel free to read http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?itemid=3159047 As brad says, if you don't trust me, don't use the client. And comments are off here, because if you want to comment, please post them in the lj_biz journal.

That's all.

Automatic Links In Support

"URLs are automatically link-ified, so just reference those." Indeed all links are automatically link-ified, unless it comes across an & or : sign in the URL.

Clearly, it's not an important thing, but I just thought I'd bring this to your attention.

LJ User icons

The new user icons are nice, but I don't think they really relate/convey "user info" or "profile" or that type of thing. They are done well, but icons are supposed to be meaningful, first. Besides that, the different colors and lack of continuity with the rest of LiveJournal makes them look slightly out of place.

Mart told me that few people had offered any replacement, so there was no little to no choice in what to use as a replacement. Trying to be helpful, I made my own replacement!

It seems to be more meaningful. I made userinfo.gif four pixels smaller, so they are less invasive. They also look good on differently-colored backgrounds; I had made an example but removed it because even though I put a base href in there some idiotic search engine decided to fill up my error log/inbox with 404 errors it caused.

Hope you like.

Note: Yes, I made a matching delcomment.gif, but not the rest of the grey-ish buttons... I just couldn't stand seeing it not match! ;) It's welcome to be used as well...

Problem, again, posting from the Mac

I am posting a lot of the time lately from the Mac using the web interface. Whether I do a regular or full update, the time that pops up in the Local Time information is one hour behind.

I can't find it here, but I know I talked to Brad about this same problem several months ago, and he did manage to fix it - some problem with cross-platform javascript compatibility, since it was (and still is) working fine from WIn32 or Linux.

Now, however, with my iMac under OS 9.1 and IE5 (the problem originally cropped up with IE5 under OS 8.6), the time is back to being an hour slow.

Anything done to the JS on these pages recently that might cause this? Anything?
