It just watches the LJ XML feed once every so often, pulls the data, sorts out the mood tags, and keeps a running track of what moods are most prevalent. Nothing fancy.

It's been fun to watch, because LJ has mood swings. In the mornings, it's mostly "awake" and "tired." Through the day, it alternates being "bored" and "amused," and sometimes "happy." Around 9:00 PM EST, it starts getting "sleepy," and usually stays sleepy until around 8:00 the next morning.

Current Mood: geekygeeky

I love that LJ was amused earlier tonight. That's a good way to be.

bwahaha! you didn't post the most amusing part of the explanation!

I feel like a seismographer, who sleeps in the same room with his machine and waits for it to beep so he can call the president. I kind of hope the ring noticeably responds to some major world event, but--since LJ is compromised almost entirely of 14-year-old girls and gay men, I'm afraid the only thing that would shake it up is if Paris Hilton's show got canceled.
