I'm attempting to get magpie working with friends only
livejournal rss feeds. the problem I'm running into is
that Magpie doesn't connect when I use following format:

http://username:password@www.livejournal.com/users/LJNAME/data/rss?auth=digest

I can connect to it normally but I get a confirmation
dialogue when I visit with firefox. I think magie
isn't doing that, or something related to confirming.
could auth=digest or something that handles
usernames/password in the URL be included?

I'd work on it myself, but magpie is like a magic black
box to me. It usually works exactly as I want it to,
and most of the code is beyond me anyways.

thanks

    I think there are two ways of retrieving LJ feeds. One is

    username:password@www.livejournal.com/users/LJNAME/data/rss

    The other is

    www.livejournal.com/users/LJNAME/data/rss?auth=digest

    The second method will prompt for a password, the first
    should just work.
