AN ALARMING ITEM TO FIND ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST

LiveJournal lays off substantial number of employees without severance (various estimates of numbers, but roughly half the thirty staff seems right - summary here).

Fortunately, there is a good choice of software for backing up your journal:

  • ljArchive (Windows only, archives entries and comments)
  • ljmigrate (needs python, archives entries, comments and userpics)
  • ljdump (needs python, archives entries and comments)
  • LJBook (produces PDF of your LJ, currently overwhelmed)
  • LiveJournal Backup (Windows only, archives entries and comments)
  • LJSM (needs perl, archives entries, comments, memories, userpics, other images)
  • jbackup (needs perl, archives entries and comments)
  • XJournal (OS X only, GUI-based, archives entries only
  • LiveJournal Export (month by month as XML, archives entries only)

This is a cybernetic datum for the public good.
