This is me using a command-line client on my
iPod to post simultaneously to DW and LJ. As
counter-intuitive as it might sound to use a
terminal on an iPod there are only two LJ
apps out there and the one that does not
completely suck provided no easy way that I
could find to direct it to DW instead of LJ
which is how I need to do things the way my
crossposting is set up.

For some perverse
reason I want to find out whether there is
any way to get this client to crosspost to
twitter and Facebook because although there
are plenty of apps that do that just fine I
like the idea of posting in four places at
once from the command line.
Yes my iPod is
jailbroken. I am using charm which is a
python program and yes you can install a

Heh. The irony is that what I am doing is basically going backwards. Using the command line on an iPod is like using MS-DOS on whatever Windows-based phones are out there, except that Unix is a much more reasonable operating system than DOS ever could be.

The challenge is that Apple does not make this approach available by default. You have to do extra geeking out to get down to the nuts and bolts. But that is also a great portion of the fun! :)
