Recommendation: LJArchive

So folks are speculating after the recent LiveJournal layoffs about the future of LJ. (See also this article and this one.)

While I'm not inclined to put too much stock into rumors, I'd be sad if LJ closed down shop—although at the same time I don't feel that the world would end if it did. But I did decide that it has been too long since I made a complete back-up of my blog. Rectified now.

In case anyone else is casting about for a good archiving application for their LJ, lemme recommend LJArchive (downloadable from SourceForce). While it seems that it's no longer being supported or upgraded, it's free and a pretty elegant little bit of software. It archives comments as well as posts, synchronizes smoothly, and does its job quickly and easily.
