live.*

Long time, no update no info. I've been crazy busy with work, and school, but now that it is all done, live.* needs to get done. Currently we use Calendars.Net for our little Calendar but its horrid to work with. About 90% of the times I try to update it doesn't work. The page also uses iframes which kills some browsers, and I know about it.

Instead of switching to some other type Calendar program I was hoping we could just write our own simple one. I figure we can do it in Perl/BML to match the rest of the site. All it really needs to store is a date/time, subject, and event description. Then make an interface for add/editing/deleting events, and have a front end that would allow them to be displayed in a similar as now. Why don't I do it? Well, my perl book is somewhere under my desk, and I've been meaning to get to it, but that's another story. I'm sure someone with experience could knock it out pretty quickly. If it's a cheese interface, I could do all the HTML to make it integrate with the rest of the livejournal site.

Properties documentation?

I'd swear I remember seeing either a link or a post that documented the LJ posting properties (prop_name) somewhere around here, but I've not been able to find it anywhere.

It's mentioned in the developer area, specifically under the Protocol Mode List section, but the document itself eludes me.

Anyone know offhand where it might be found? ;-)
