Postas with the mostas

I come up with some of the damndest ideas when I'm looking for trouble in which to involve myself. For my latest excursion, I have compiled a table showing the posting frequency of the people on my friends list. The posting frequency is found by dividing the total number of posts by the journal's age in days. The table is sorted by posting frequency in descending order.

<th>LiveJournal User</th> <th>Journal Creation Date</th> <th>Journal Age in days</th> <th>Posts</th> <th>Posting Rate</th>

Re: Well, that's a crapload more work...

I think there's an API that lets you harvest a user's journal (well, at least those posts you have access to). There might also be an LJ stats API. No idea, but I'm sure someone's asked for it by now. ;-)

Re: Well, that's a crapload more work...

Yeah, you are correct. Unfortunately, journals only download in XML format, so you have to do a crapload of parsing to get any useful information out of them.

Perl can Do It For You. ;-)
