Okay, so I just read this article from Gizmodo about LJ. There were a few things I didn't know in here, primarily that the servers for LJ are now located in Russia. That, to me, does signify that LJ could be shut down at any moment, although it doesn't really show how likely that is.

I need to get over and back up my account. In the meantime, I just started Dreamwidth's "Import Journal" function. I am dubious that it will work for all entries, but we'll see how that goes.

Do I really even want to import all of those entries? I don't know. It gives me some comfort, I guess. Only very rarely do I go back and hunt for an entry.

I will work on the LJ icons. I have handpicked a bunch over the yeras and I rather like them.

I think the servers have been in Russia since December....

I imported my entries - including comments - and it worked great, but now may not be the time to do it. There are SO MANY people in the queue and the delays are significant. Wait until the demand dies down.

I'm glad I have the entries. Occasionally I do go back and re-read, sometimes for insight, sometimes to get a date on when something happened.

Importing mine right now too. It's copied over my profile and tags, still working on entries. The new terms about things we are not allowed to post about pretty much decided me to go ahead and soon leave LJ.

Well, that's a good point. That's another thing - things we are not allowed to post. Nope.
