Anyone else having issues with the new Semagic client? Got an update notice last night, and updated just fine. Fired it up, firewall gave it's usual "hey, something changed!" message, gave permissions, and it logged in fine. Today, I fire it up, and it just hangs at "Authenticating", doesn't actually send any info to LJ to try and log in...firewall shows no network activity for it, but yes, does show that it has permission to do its thing. Even found a slightly newer build, and installed that one, still same issue.

It's not the firewall. I even turned it off to test this, and nothing happened differently. I've even made sure all registry settings were gone, and reinstalled both the new and older versions that worked, and same thing, just sits there. Everything else connects just fine, so it's not my network.

I'm stumped.

EDIT: Uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled...and now it works fine. See, this is the kind of thing that gives me the creeps. *shrug*

Uninstalled, rebooted the machine, reinstalled...works fine. Figure THAT one out.

Blame it on Bill Gates.

Haven't downloaded it-- thoughts on it thus far?

Semagic really is the best client I've used. I like that it's got a lot of features, and stays current with new things LJ adds.

Dunno what this issue was, but it's fine now and that's the only issue I've ever had.

Oops, that should have read, "Haven't downloaded the new version of it yet-- thoughts on it thus far?"

I pretty much bounce back and forth between posting from it, Deepest Sender, and LJ's direct posting page, with Semagic constantly running as a "posts-in-progress" sort of entity, as I tend to have multiple posts sitting in the thing, and also use it for keeping running lists of, "Oh Oh Oh Oh!!! I need to track down this song" after hearing it somewhere. ;)

Going to install new version now.
