by way of introduction...

hello all, my name's james, I've been using live journal for all of a week :-) , but I've been manually doing a similar thing for about a year and finding out that it was open-source swung it for me.

I develop phone applications for a living, so I imagine I will look at doing/contributing to a wap/sms - based client . I also wrote an nntp server for ezboard, and I'm toying with the idea of doing a similar thing for the commentage. (not that I dislike the web-based version, but I *like* newsgroups.) I haven't looked at the commenting code though, so this mght be utterly impractical :-)

Good to make your acquaintance, all. :-)

user-Interest searching

LiveJournal is my first SQL experience so I'm no DB expert, but I think I have a way to fix user-interest searching to allow multiple search terms and interest-matching between users without killing the site.

First let me say that interest-matching between users and searching by multiple interests is pretty much the same thing. The only difference is that most searches entered by users will have 2 or 3 keywords where user-interest matching looks at all the interests a user has. Both these problems can be addressed as one.
