Just a memo for myself ...

OK, so I've been on L.J. now for over 7 years (I missed my "anniversary" again this year back on 5/5) and am not planning on going anywhere, but with all the hub-bub over some seeming knee-jerk account deletions, I was reminded that I've been meaning to do an "archive" of my now nearly 3,000 journal entries for ages.

Of course, in my current "borrowing computers" state, I'm not going to be pulling the trigger on this project anytime in the immediate future, but I figured I'd stick the info in here to make it easier to find when I'm back up and running. The program in question is ljArchive and is also available over on, along with a community over here about the program. Another interesting possibility is something called LJ Book, which lets you turn your archive into a .PDF document, or order it printed as an actual book!

There is certainly a "First they came for ..." vibe in the air on L.J. at the moment. If some group of blue-nosed sphincter grippers can get Six Apart to delete the accounts featuring (to fabricate an example) Batman/Robin slash, how long is it going to be before some other group of shitheads decides that "unpopular political statements" are nothing but thinly veiled "terroristic threats" and need to be purged as well? As an Ann Coulter fanboy, I'm worried!
