Birthday Reminders

weather: mostly cloudy
outside: 10°C
mood: experimental
music: Ben Heppner - Luisa Miller, Quando le Sere al Placido (Verdi)
*sigh* If you were thinking about entering all your friends' birthdays into some other reminder system (like the Yahoo Calendar or something), you may just want to hunker down and do it.

Progress isn't moving very fast on bringing back the Birthday Reminders. And there's no telling when it'll be done. It's nearing a fixed state, but the last patch submitted was rejected and it's at least days, sometimes, weeks or months in between the action.

I'm really saying this because I'm hoping that by being pessimistic and if enough people start the long and tedious task of entering all their friends' birthdays into their own reminder system, a new patch will be submitted tomorrow, bradfitz will approve it and move it live =D

What might be a better idea is for someone to find some sort of exportable format, maybe if there's a standard xml format for calendaring or date reminders or something, and write an exporter so that there's an easy way to export birthdays from LJ and import them into whatever... just a thought.

Re:
Y'know, that's not such a bad idea. I thought about julienning birthday.bml somehow and get it into some text format.

And Yahoo! will take a CSV file... =D

Well, I'm glad that it's easy for you to remember *MY* birthday

Re:
Hehe, that's one I routinely forget because I don't celebrate my own birthday. I only remember when the radio DJ's sing happy birthday to Winona Ryder =D
