links working improperly

Request 8283 brings up a very interesting issue with the service. when using a typically safe page reference like /support/help.bml instead of http://www.livejournal.com/support/help.bml the link will normall work perfectly. as is the function of such a link, it'll look at the main URL in your address window and go to it. in theory, if i'm looking at my friends page at www.livejournal.com/~darksoul/friends and see that link, it'll work fine. but if i'm looking at darksoul.livejournal.com/friends because i'm a paid user and can do that, it sends me to darksoul.livejournal.com/support/help.bml which is obviously incorrect. i've also made this post to lj_support so that they are aware the issue exists. i'm sure that you guys already know it exists as well.

Another OSX client

I've been working on an independent OSX client, which I've just got to a workable stage, so I'm releasing a test alpha:

http://www.aegidian.org/yaxjournal/

I'd appreciate any comments, feedback and advice on what features other clients have that I should be implementing, and especially a proper link to the properties a journal entry can have.
