Daily Del.icio.us with Livejournal?

Is it possible to get Daily Del.icio.us posting to my Livejournal?

I've seen a few different posts on getting it to work with MT and a couple on getting it to work with WordPress, but nothing on getting it to work with Livejournal or Blogger (LJ supports the Blogger API).

I tried getting it to run on my own, putting the following things in:

job_name livejournal
out_name my LJ username
out_pass my LJ passwords
out_url http://www.livejournal.com/interface/blogger/blogger.newPost
out_time 3
out_blog_id 443621 (Is this my blog ID? It's the number next to my username on my - self link, sorry - info page.)
out_cat_id blank

...but I just get the following error message:

results:Running at Mon Oct 31 03:17:52 2005 GMT
Fetched 1 items.
metaWeblog.newPost fault was: Failed to access class (metaWeblog): Can't locate metaWeblog.pm in @INC (@INC contains:) at (eval 342) line 3, line 99.

What am I doing wrong? Is this even possible? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've already asked this question of LJ support, but they just told me stuff I already knew and I didn't want to push it since it's really a Del.icio.us thing, not an LJ thing.

Oops, forgot this link too.

I'm a complete XML-RPC ignoramus, but from the error message, it looks like whatever object handles weblog posting in LJ doesn't work exactly like the Blogger API does. Try hunting through lists.del.icio.us for leads.

Oh darn. I was hoping to find all sorts of great answers in this thread. Does that mean it's impossible? joshuaconner did you find anything worth reporting?

Response by poster: panoptician: I went through the lists.del.icio.us link but found nothing. Somewhere (can't find the page now!) I stumbled upon the fact that apparently del.icio.us uses the MetaWeblog API to make the daily posts; though the MW API is apparently very similar to the Blogger API, it also apparently differs in some key ways, which may be where the problem lies. If I don't hear from anyone else in the next day or so, I'll post a question to Google Answers and link to that here.

Tasty Post. I have no idea how it works but it claims to be able to post to LiveJournal.

This is _long_ after the fact, but on the off chance anyone ever stumbles across this thread:

There's a PHP script called Delicious Glue that acts as a very capable middleman between del.icio.us and LJ. Using it myself, and it works like a charm.
