Okay, friends, I just pushed a new version of fren.tcl to github.
Also, I uploaded a tarball to http://tonybaldwin.me/downloads/frentcl-v
Fren.tcl now allows for xposting to Livejournal, Dreamwidth, Wordpress, Posterous and Tumblr (as well as statusnet, facebook and twitter, which were already working).
This article was posted to my friendica profile and crossposted to my LJ, DW, posterous, tumblr and wordpress blogs!
I updated the friendi.sh bash script to post to friendica with bash, vim and curl, so it now includes the options for xposting to lj, dw, wp, posterous, and tumblr.

# what does the server say?
For those that missed it, last night (really early this morning), I also pushed new code to github for fren.tcl, the graphical, tcl/tk program for doing the same stuff. This script is also in that repo.
