so i am testing this journal application, since i've gotten real lazy with my private journalling, mainly because i've never put it into a useful system, and am tired of searching with grep through years of text files. though there is something to be said for that; i'm not sure i should change it.





the program is viJournal 1.9 (the last version that works with tiger; i am coming to believe it's time to upgrade to leopard). it allegedly can post my entries to LJ; i am about to check that. how will it handle images, i wonder? well, let's see.

ah, it makes a placeholding link. good. (i have no idea whom to credit for this lovely sentiment, or i would.)





for the most part it's not intuitive, and nothing is at my fingertips that i would want there to be. like, simple text changes have hotkeys and menu items, but no separate palette. while i learn a new program i really like palettes with tool tips ; they help me learn the hotkeys much faster than going to the menus.

oy. i don't like it. it adds extra line breaks; i don't really want the date here (since LJ does its own date), and the font size is much larger.

The giant font is annoying.

*hides from large font* It reminds me of my building manager at work who believes that the message "Juan is coming" needs to be sent in bright red, 50 point font, all caps, and with highest priority. Every week.

It took me months before I figured out that Juan was our resident handyman and that I didn't need to flee in fear.
