How to Back-Up Your Journal
Since SixApart is buying Livejournal, I know there will be a lot of people wanting to know how to back-up their journal.

You can do so with this:

You have to do it month-by-month, but I choose a comma-separated value text file and save it as a rich text file.

Someone else has posted these third-party tools for backing up your journal. I can't vouch for them personally, but here they are:

http://ljbackup.yamnet.co.uk/
http://www.ljbook.com/ljbook.html

I don't want to cause a panic, because I don't think anything drastic is going to happen. But I know people will be wanting to find this. I back mine up every month, so it's nothing out of the ordinary for me.

mood: helpful
music: Al Green - "Tired of Being Alone"

fawx seems pretty cool. it downloads comments, too, and you can sort them, etc.
