If you're using xp or 2000, and not using the client...
The "Sema" client is a small program you install
on your computer that provides an easy to use
interface for making and reviewing updates to
your lj, and managing your friends lists.
(these, among a zillion other things it does...)
You can go to the "Sema Windows XP and 2000" Community (called ljwin32_sema)
[ :: here :: ] and see the "download page" link below the first entry on the page.
That link takes you to a mirror site list on "Sourceforge" [ :: here ::]
Across the top you can see "click here" to get sema for windows 95/98/ME and a different link to get sema for windows XP and 2000.
You can also download a dictionary for the program spell checker to use... no jokes please. :)
I'm using version 18.104.22.168.
Under the view menu, there is a selection for "Transparency". This makes your pop up client "see through".
I'm not sure how useful it is... but it sure is neat. :)
