Top 40 Commenters to my LiveJournalCollapse )

I wrote this up so Mac users can join in the fun. First, download my script script and save it somewhere.

Second, log into your LiveJournal and go to http://www.livejournal.com/export_comments.bml?get=comment_meta&startid=0 and save the resulting page as export_comments.bml.xml in the same place you saved my script.

Finally, open a Terminal window, go to the directory you saved my script and the comments file in, and type
perl commenters.pl your_ljname export_comments.bml.xml
You'll get the HTML to paste into your LiveJournal in your Terminal window.

Is it the most Mac-ish of solutions? No, but it gets the job done. Maybe I'll wrap it in CamelBones later so it has a cool Aqua interface, but right now, it works. :)
