Backing up LJ?

So, I never ever post here anymore. But I'd like to have my oooold entries for posterity, and then delete my account because I'm not particularly comfortable with the new LJ owner situation. All the backup tools on http://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=LiveJournal are nonfunctional. Does anyone have a good tool? Should I go to Dreamwidth or whatever that was called? What are you guys doing?

Also, hello! :)

So the old LJBook is now blogbooker.com , and you can back up your whole journal at one go if you pay, I think it's like $30. My journal is YUGE because of all the photos, so I had to download each year separately, but it worked like a charm. I have PDF journals from every year safely stored on my machine and backup drives.

I also export everything over to dreamwidth every so often, as a mirror, which is free. The combination of those two methods makes me feel comfortable.

Thank you! That's good to know.
