MySpace progress

Posted 7 August 2006 in blog, cross-post, and myspace

Remember how I said I was considering creating a program to help with cross- posting my blog entries to MySpace? So far I'm able to programmatically log into MySpace, but darned if I can get a blog entry actually posted! I've been trying to figure out what the magic sauce is to get it working properly, but it's just not there yet. I hope to have a breakthrough later tonight or sometime this week.

I'll update my projects page when the program actually does something.

UPDATE - I almost immediately discovered the problem: typos! Anyway, feel free to try out the script. Oh! and remember to never enter your email address and password on any site other than MySpace.com. While I promise I'm not logging that information, you need to be aware that it is technically possible for me to store your login information.

I'm not, but always be on the defense. This is the internet, kids - don't be wide-eyed about it.
