Ugh

LJ is in trouble.  There have been layoffs and now there's a panic that it could disappear forever.  So of course everyone is over at LJBook.com trying to back their journals up to a pdf and it's crashed.  Are there any other services that do that?

i've got a word document open, and I think i'm going to do this old school. at least the important entries to start. I wish I could save the comments as well. I'll keep trying the LJ book, maybe late at night would be a better time?

If you do it old school and copy/paste into Word you can get the comments by going into each entry. That would really suck though :(

I made it onto ljbook and then entered my info. I waited a few minutes and it said there are too many people trying to use the service and asked me for a donation. lmao

Found this link also but naturally it is blocked on VPN so I can't tell you how good/available it is.

I used ljarchive and it worked quickly and painlessly. It's awesome. I had to archive 6 years and it did it all in one fell swoop.

Am I right in reading the faq that you have to export one month at a time?

I'm going to check out the lj book thing, though I'll have 3 different blogs to try and back up. Maybe the word thing will work, but I'm like red_canuck I'd like to have the comments too.

Hmm... looks like SUP make beeg trouble for Moose and Squirrel.

I've heard from a trusted friend who has been on LJ for years that the layoffs were not as numerous as Valleywag reports. The theory is that the jobs will be moved overseas. So it's probably not as bad as all that.

The article did seem very biased and snarky.

If they are laying off ppl then moving the jobs over sea's, I am sorry to say I will be quiting LJ.
