At the end of high school and beginning of college, many of my friends had online journals. I wanted a more convenient way to read them than checking a bunch of links to see if any were updated. So I wrote this program which allowed you to keep a list of users on LiveJournal, DeadJournal, and Blurty that you followed, then it would sort and combine them for easy reading.
I released this at the time to the friends whose journals I was reading. Back then it was pretty useful to be able to just run a shortcut to this program to display any updates from the past week. Now this can be accomplished much more simply by using RSS
, but RSS wasn't as well known when I wrote this.
