Ace Ventura

asLJ

Mars Editor is a pain in the arse to use as a LiveJournal client. Now, I'm trying asLJ.

I still desperately long for Semagic, but it doesn't look like a Mac version of that will ever come to fruition. The main thing I loved about Semagic was its ability to notify when when a friend or community would post. That little blinking pencil always caught my attention and made me feel much more involved in the LJ community. Since I have been without that, I feel like an umbilical cord has been cut.

So, maybe asLJ will be a better fit, even though I still don't get notifications. Time will tell.

FWIW, I've been using ASLJ for a few years now, and it's been decent enough. I basically want something that allows me to save unfinished entries and to post to both DW and LJ (or one or the other) with ease, so haven't had a huge look at its other bits of functionality. I still reload my friends page as my main way to keep up.
Thank you for the insight. So far, it's been much more agreeable than Mars Edit. The only thing that irritates me is that I can't seem to change my avatar for a post. It only uses my default pic. Other than that, and it not notifying me when there are new posts on the friends page, I'm quite pleased.
