I am Torgo X, doer of stuff, writer of writings, and maker of things and whatnot!
I wish the LJ feed-harvester would identify itself as something a bit more explicit than just "libwww-perl/5.63", so that when I look at my httpd logs, I can have better information about what hits are coming from where.
Here's how to do this: Right after the line in the Perl code where the harvester creates a new LWP::UserAgent object, add this statement (assuming the object is in a variable called $ua):
$ua->agent( "LiveJournal/1.1" # XXXX or however you get the LJ version number . " ( " . join(' ; ', 'email@example.com', # XXXX or whatever the webmaster address is 'http://www.livejournal.com/~syndname/', # XXXX or however you interpolate the synd's address # Any other salient components here... # Like maybe the number of subscribers? # And finally the LWP version: $ua->can('_agent') ? $ua->_agent : $ua->agent ) . " )");
