LJ Archieving Request

Given the potentially disturbing news that LJ have cut over 2/3rds of their workforce today can anybody suggest to me a good LJ Archieving tool (with links) so I can back-up my various LJs (primarily this one) pronto.

Hopefully it's nothing but in the current economic climate it's entirely possible we might be waving bye to LJ if we're unlucky (I really hope not though as I still prefer this as a blogging site to anything else I've used. I love Facebook - but for completely different reasons to LJ).

Also, for those of you out there on Facebook I am on there (just search for Angus Abranson) so if LJ does have problems you can keep in touch there. Please feel free to friend me :) If the worst case scenario does come about then I'll be looking at keeping a blog going 'somewhere' - just don't know where - so if anyone has any suggestions regarding an LJ-like blogging site (what's Word Press like?) please let me know. Ideally I'd like something that a number of friends will also be on that will allow easy access and browsing for friends latest blog entries similiar to LJ's Friends Page.

Anyway, please send me backup options + other blog options!!!! And I'll keep my fingers crossed I won't really need them!

Yellowstone Go Boom Now....?

Marc was talking about this a week or two ago.

At the time I didn't really think anything of it as Yellowstone can have up to 3000 earthquakes in an average year. So having a hundred or so across a day or two, whilst a lot, was not anything too out of the ordinary for the area - especially as all of them were very, very low rankings.

It seems to have continued though with a 3.9 having now been recorded and slightly worrying authorities.

Guess Marc's Doomswatch Counter can carry on ticking!
