I Feel So Special

weather: cloudy
outside: 6°C
mood: giddy
I'm running a private build of </a></b></a>semagic because I reported the bugs and I get to try out the new build with the fixes.

I really don't know what the big deal is. I get pre-releases of all kinds of big name commercial software all the time. You'd think I'd be pretty blasée about that kind of thing by now.

Anyway, I got a fix build. The original problems were fixed, but halo regression showed other areas that still showed the same symptoms. I got a second fix build and halo regression cases all passed.

Look for </a></b></a>semagic 1.3.9.8 soon. =)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Semagic 1.9.3.8.

Re: Ooh. I see. Makes sense.
I stopped using the other client in April 2002 because visions (Tim Yardley) threatened LJ with legal action over the spellchecking module (or something). I forget exactly what it was. The big firefight has now been hidden from public view, but basically, visions was being an asshole. He had no legal leg to stand on. But because Semagic was based on the then-"Official" client, no one was allowed to use Semagic temporarily while LJ was in negotiations with him.

I started trying out all kinds of other LJ Clients and when Semagic was being smuggled in the back alleys =) I picked it up. Looking at Semagic, you could tell that Alexei Semanov (the original author) was a very detail-oriented person and knew what useful features users would like in an LJ client. The things he put into it were brilliant. His was the first to have Friends List notifications, dockable palettes, keyboard shortcuts, etc., etc.
