His script is at http://www.stuartwoodward.com/python/journal2.py.txt
Oh... and it's released under a Creative Commons license, too. Spiffy.
As Stuart said regarding the script:
"It is run via the mail server every time a mail comes to a certain address and it grabs the information in the mail from stdin and posts it over to LJ. My ISP uses Qmail and I just add a file in my home directory to sent all mail sent to a secret address to my script."
My problem, unfortunately, is that I have never so much as looked at Python before. A lot of it *seems* pretty straightforward, but I have the fear -- there must be something I am missing that will make using this script far more troublesome than it appears. I'll have to fiddle around with it a bit. Right about now, I'm wishing I had a Python expert I could bribe who would help me with setting it up, but I will probably have to muddle through. What is really needed for people to make wider use of such scripts are some crystal clear installation instructions, or a web-based application that does it all for you.
It's at times like this when I wish I could just bribe techies with a dozen or so LJ invite codes. I have a headache, and I wish that life didn't conspire against me in ways that force me to think.
