ljlatest(6) prints the most recent public posts on livejournal.com.


ljlatest [--verbose] [--columns N]


The ljlatest script reads the most recent public posts made to livejournal.com, and prints them on stdout, after doing a rudimentary conversion of HTML to plain text.

This script is just a wrapper around

xscreensaver-text \
  --url http://www.livejournal.com/stats/latest-rss.bml

As of XScreenSaver 4.21, you can just use use above URL in the "Text URL" field on the "Advanced" tab in xscreensaver-demo(1).


This program makes it seem like morons have invaded your screen saver.

The output is always ISO-8859-1, regardless of locale.
