Concerning spell-checker
def

A lot of people lust for decent spell-checker in Semagic.
Note - bradfitz promised to pass me the licence on the spellchecker that is used by official client and was bought on behalf of LiveJournal.
But it was rather long time ago, still there's no answer from Brad and I decided to release new beta meanwhile.
So, let's just wait.

No need. visions has licence but can't (and apparently don't want to - he's jealous of his past work on the client) transfer it to me. Brad can and want to.

wrong. the license i have is a personal license, it is not mine to pass. the one that was bought on behalf of lj is property of lj. if brad wants to transfer the license to you, by all means. but, he cannot use it after it is transfered.

it is a legal issue. your unfounded accusations are trite.

May be I was mistaken - I thought there's the only one licence, for you and Brad, it seems to me you told it yourself. If you has your own one - I apologize.

brad has a license that he cannot let you use unless you are an employee of livejournal or unless he transfers the license to you.

i have a license of my own. brad never provided me with access to the one from lj because i was never an employee of lj.

for the future, i reccommend that you get the facts together before you state something that makes you look like an ass. As for your statement about me being "jealous" of your client, you couldn't be more wrong. you have added a lot of nice features, and for that i applaud you. you have however proven that you are unwilling to work towards a common goal. on several occassions i have offered you the opportunity to make your client better for everyone by merging our efforts. you have repeatedly stated that you prefer to work on it alone.

In future - don't preach at me ever. And please, refrain from posting in my journals from now on.

you have however proven that you are unwilling to work towards a common goal <...> you have repeatedly stated that you prefer to work on it alone

I'm tired of argueing with you...
It's YOU that don't want to work towards a common goal - you've repeatedly stated that you don't want to send me patches, wasn't you?
You want to rule the project - i don't want you to. Period.
Case is closed.

Just a quick question. I use the LJ windows client, and have downloaded the Semagic client, and it wont connect to the server. How come the original one works, but not Semagic? I have checked the Proxy settings with a friend and they are all correct.

Have no idea so far..

It's the only LiveJournal client that actually works on my computer! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Sorry, I'm just really happy!!! *smiles*

Would it not be easier to use a free spell checker such as ispell or aspell? This way you won't have to worry about licensing at all.
Mark.
