bird poops on plum branch
Is there a program that backs up your LiveJournal to another server, or your computer, or to a mango, or something like that?  I was just trying to find all of my entries that were on a particular filter, and couldn't find a way to do it.  Is it impossible?  Am I stupid?  I found a program call ljArchive that seems to work for Windows, but not on the Mac.

Seems to me that someone could make some money just by creating a website that uses the LJ web service to back up your account, make mass permission edits, experiment upon, and do all the things that you'd want to do with 8 years of entries that you don't remember writing and which people who you now may or may not want to read about things that they can or can not.  Anyway.  Someone tell me this already exists so I don't try to make it myself.

For Mac, I don't know.

You could get GTK and all that other crap installed and use LogJam, it has offline search...

fwiw, i haven't tried any of those. xJournal for mac also has offline history browsing.

The export seems to only let you export one month at a time... and xJournal doesn't seem to archive your previous posts as far as I can tell...

oh, wait... xJournal can download everything. cool. I'll see what happens.

Yeah xjourlal works. I keep all my journals back to 1989 in it. Bad tag implementation though the author assured me he's working on it
