11:05 - How to back up your LiveJournal
People were asking me how to back up your LiveJournal.
LiveJournal provides the Export Journal page, which gives you one month at a time. It only gives you the entries, not the comments.
LJ Book converts your journal to a nice .PDF. However, everyone and their dog, cat, mouse, and bird is using it now; the site is terribly slow.
SourceForge has a program, LJ Archive. Supposedly, this program downloads both entries and comments.
(I used this method.) The program XJournal has a "History" page. By clicking the "download" button, you get all of your entries (but not comments.)
I haven't seen recommended methods for backing up specifically under Unix.
