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.

logjam can do the job too.

They really ought to be able to keep LJ ticking over given that people pay real money for it. If tougher times mean they can't afford staff for new features that's not something I'll lose much sleep over given what some of those features have been in the past.


I would hope paid accounts are safe, but maybe I should run a back-up on both my accounts.
