LJ Backup - follow up

Props to vaughan_stanger   for convincing me to give ljArchive another try.

Whereas yesterday it failed bizarrely every time I ran it, today it is working.  You need at least one good sync for the tool to start working properly, so you may have to try many, many times...

Here's the link:
LJArchive

It's not perfect.  I don't think it downloads images locally (seems to leave them on LJ, even when I export to an HTML file), but it is a well-organizaed backup of all the text.

The original messages it gave me led me to believe it wasn't working at all. I suppose it just got stuck.

I did wonder...I've never had problems with it, but one never knows...

It's working today.

Which reminds me that I ought to run it once in a while ;-)

Which reminded me, too. Except it's not working for me today. I keep getting errors.

Persistence pays off on this one. It took me a while.
