Not Me Posted on July 14, 2007 by grahams This must be a DIFFERENT Sean Graham, because not only am I far more adorable than that chump pictured, but I also back up my LJ on a regular basis. =)

Out of curiosity, how do you back yours up?
I will bet a dollar on amazon s3.
Wouldn’t that be the where to back it up, not the how? Or does S3 have tools to do stuff like that?
I seem to recall there being an export to XML feature a few years ago.
Yup, I just found http://www.livejournal.com/export.bml – looks helpful.
When I’m feeling lazy, I use ljArchive, which is only windows. When I’m more inspired, I go to the Export page and export XML files for each month. I’m not sure if these files include comments though, and ljArchive does, so I might be better off sticking with ljArchive.
I thought of making a headless backup tool based on it. I think it’s written in C# and .NET, but maybe the actual sync engine will run under Mono.
Haha, that guy looks like a mouth breathing mongoloid.
forgive my lack of know-how as i did not actually study anything at your elite institution – only sat in art classes looking posh – but how can i back up my lj? …. copy and paste just doesn’t feel that swish, you know? :P
If you’re a windows user, your best bet is to grab ljArchive. Otherwise you’ll have to use the export page… Of course, I haven’t looked in awhile for a OSX or Unix version/clone of ljArchive, so perhaps some digging is required.
