The poster is now behaving strangely when it works across different timezones. Interesting problem this. When I query advogato for the last posted date, it responds with a date/time information. This is converted by the apache XMLRPC client for java into a Date Object. This date object for some strange reason has my local timezone embedded in it instead of the timezone of the server. Since I live in a timezone that is about 12 hours ahead of Advogato, strange things happen when I use this date to decide on what local files should be posted to advogato. Anybody has any ideas on this? Please drop me a note - vivekv at magic hypen cauldron dot com.
I am hosting the software on my site. Please look at the link called Advogato Poster under the software section. Except for the one bug mentioned above, I think the software works fine.
Spending a relaxed weekend at home. Too hot to attempt to go anywhere. My siste-in-law and family will come over tomorrow. Planning to go to the beach to cool off in the evening.
