I will soon be moving my postings from LiveJournal to Dreamwidth. I am going to try to set up my autoposting of my photos to go here first, then to mirror over to LiveJournal.

Since I haven't done must testing over here yet, there is a possibility that the photos may break your reading page like it used to do back when LJ was young. For that, I apologize in advance. If it happens, let me know and I'll do what I can to fix it as soon as possible.

If the auto-posting here gets to be too much, but you want to follow me elsewhere, here are the other places I post:

With the recent changes to LiveJournal*, I am considering moving my primary posting to Dreamwidth and synchronizing my posts back to here. For those also making the shift, here is my profile. If you want to follow me on Dreamwidth, log into Dreamwidth, click that my profile link, then click on "Add to your circle" in tiny text at the top left.

If you do not wish to move to Dreamwidth, you can follow me elsewhere:

There is a better than average chance that, at some point in the next few years, this account (and all postings herein) will vanish entirely, so if you think you might want to reach me in the future, it may be worth saving this list somewhere.

* You may have noticed that LiveJournal has moved from HTTPS to HTTP, taking a step back in security. This, coupled with the move to Russia, has raised concerns for many of us. Given the work I do, and that I intend to continue doing, I can't really consider anything on LiveJournal to be private in any way.

As it turns out, with the transition from HTTPS to HTTP, a *lot* of the automated LJ backup tools broke.

The one that still appears to work is Blog Booker. It handles private entries, comments, tags, etc and can convert it to both PDF and DOC format. It's no good for future import into something like Wordpress (which I hope will be fixed soon), but it seems to work very well for a personal archive.

If you want to archive more than a year, it'll cost you money. The same goes for wanting high resolution images ... which will also increase the file size and download time. For example, my own LJ goes back to 2005 and, when turned into a PDF with high res files, is 1.7Gb, taking up to an hour to generate and download.

You get to convert 12 blogs for $30 at the standard paid level, which I guess means that I can convert eleven people's LJ's if they wanted to give me their password (which, if you decide to do, please change your password first).

It's not perfect, but it's a workable option, so I'm mentioning it here.

This caribou just wants to test that synchronization between Dreamwidth and LiveJournal is functional.

Caribou have moderate desires.
