Asking for a Friend

I now have more than 10 years of LJ entries. Does anyone know if there is a way to download them, short of cutting/copying each bloody one?

Comments

I made a dreamwidth backup some time ago, and can autopost to LJ from that account. All of my old posts were transferred at the same time. That's the easiest backup I've found.

What type of functionality are you trying to preserve? Do you just want the contents of each post with metadata and comments? Are you looking for separate files that you can search, one giant file, etc? Is this something you want to happen continuously (automatic new download every time you post) or something that you'll do a few times a year?

I don't know how to do most of these things, but others likely will.
