Haven't Heard Anything Lately
I was wondering if there has been any further developments of the Chronicle Client?

1. The client (v. the one I was talking about last time I contacted Timbo) crashes at startup if I give the wrong password.

2. The "end" key doesn't do nothing.

1. Have the thingy download our journal's colour and background and font default settings, just like it downloads our user pics, for startup, that way we'll be able to enter it in an even more WYSIWYG fashion!

Just found out that Chronicle doesn't default back to the original settings. That's why the Raining post in the community a few minutes ago, sorry about that. I will have to get used to putting my settings back to where they need to be, but in the mean time are there any plans for default settings?

Custom Posting, or Use Mask

I've been enjoying the Chronicle client, in fact for the most part I like it better than the Semagic that I had been using. Last night I made a post using one of my filters with the Chronicle. I really should have made a test post first to see how it worked but didn't think too. Anyway, although I clicked on the particular list of friends that I wanted to send the post too it actually went to all three of the filters that I have listed in there. I thought at first that I had done something wrong so I went back and did a test post to make sure and even though I clicked just one filter it went to all of them.

Chronicle doesn't seem to respond to the Windows shutdown command. I need to go into the tray and shut it down manually before windows will shut down.

New Version of Chronicle Now Available.

The new version of Chronicle is available. Try it now. Let me know what you think.

It isn't perfect, but I use it for damn close to every post I make, so it's getting there. :-)

Weird: How did this get pasted into my clipboard when I tried to copy and paste the private trial entry?

"Assertion failure (c:\dev\delco7\htmledit2\Source\psHtmlEdit.pas, line 6112)"

My original post:

Chronicle, blah blah Chronicle...

What can this puppy do?

Okay. I like it a little bit. It feels kinda neat, it's spell-checking as I go and it has "new car" smell. I want to be able to edit my posts though (at the moment I'm doing it from the LJ website) and I put in a LJ user to see what would happen when I clicked a person next to "friends" and even though I deleted it the name appeared in the post. Keep working on it.

It's crashed a couple of times and doesn't remember my password even though I tell it to. Whatever. I'm sleepy.

Chronicle Client Update Now Available

There is an update to Chronicle available. Main enhancement is image support, but there are others as well. You can download it from the Chronicle website.

For those who have forgotten, Chronicle is a really cool LiveJournal client that works a lot more like a word processor than typing in a web page. It lets you easily insert links, friends, images and more.

This is still a beta, but it's running pretty solidly for me, and I rarely use the webpage (or another client!) to do entries anymore. It doesn't have a lot of the advanced features of other clients (friends management and so on), but that's on the to-do list.

Feedback is welcomed at thechronicleclient community, or in my own journal.

Chronicle - State of the Union

Hey all,

Sorry for the excessively long wait without news. Here's an update as to why things slowed down and what it happening now.

  • After the most recent update, I started making some changes to do things like cache user images and so on. I got this working very well, however, in order to do this I created a database. Now, this is fine, except that since this is a hack-project, and not something that I'm designing very carefully, I didn't want to worry about updating the data structures. So, suddenly I was looking at writing an upgrade routine in case there were changes to the database, and that was a lot more effort than I wanted to worry about.
  • There were some serious design flaws that were associated with me being lazy and stupid, instead of smart. This is most obvious when you minimize the main Chronicle window. You'll notice that it doens't go to the taskbar, and instead minimizes to the desktop. This is, in technical terms, ass.
  • So, because of the above points, I got a little discouraged and stopped working much on things.
  • I have revisited Chronicle, because I've had a number of people asking about it recently. So far, I've removed the database code completely, and have moved to an easier to maintain method of storing the data - INI files. Additionally, I've fixed the design problems, and overall I'm much happier with the current state of things.
  • In summary, development has restarted, and I hope to have an update sometime late tomorrow or Monday which has a number of new features.

For those of you who have been using Chronicle despite its faults, thank you! I think the next version will really impress people. :-)

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions or whatevers.

Stupid Prince of Persia.
Sorry for the delays. There are three reasons why the new client isn't ready.

First, Prince of Persia is too damn fun.

Second, in order to cache the user pictures, I need to create accounts, which meant some pretty hectic design changes internally to the way that Chronicle deals with logins and so on. It's mostly working, but it's not there yet.

Third, I do have a day job, and it interferes with everything. :-)

You can, if you're feeling very brave and can tolerate slower-than-I-like login times (up to 15 or 20 seconds, depending on the number of userpictures you have), you can download a recent build from http://www.uil.net/files/Chronicle.zip ... Make sure you uninstall the old version before installing this one.

As always, thoughts, suggestions, complaints, etc. are welcomed.

Ok, because it's nice to have a central place to yabber about things, I've gone and created a community for Chronicle. Please join, and follow what should prove to be a fun and interesting journey into me wasting more time than I have on something that most people will never see. :-)

Like I'm doing it for other people or something. Ha!

Anyway, I'll be releasing my first version of Chronicle sometime today. I want to add caching of moods and user pics, since they can take an awfully long time to download, especially if you're a sucker without cable or DSL.
