It's been really odd, watching the news and reading the paper, and not having to worry, like, at all.

By the way, do you have a dreamwidth?

I do have a Dreamwidth, but it's just a backup mirror of my LJ, and even then it's missing quite a few posts. You're welcome to follow it, but I won't be friending back there because the importer I use messed up my filtering and posted everything that was filtered here to general f-lock and there's stuff in there no one needs to see. :-P

Have you tried deleting it and starting over?

Also, how do I import lj to insanejournal?

Insanejournal is even more dodgy for importing because sometimes it's down and the import goes into the ether.

I use LJ Migrate, it might be a Mac thing though and it runs through a terminal emulator, and if you mess up the code it can delete your entire LJ, but it also saves a local XML copy of everything (including comments and your icons) to your hard drive.

I'm not deleteing and starting over, the importer would still skip the ones it skipped (mostly they contain coding elements not available to the DW account) and still mess up the filtering the same way. It's there as an incomplete mirror and that's about it.

Where is LJ migrate and what is a teriminal emulator?

LJ Migrate is here:

http://antennapedia.livejournal.com/266462.html

It requires some coding and may require other software to be installed in your operating system to run. Looks like they have help files for different platforms though.

A terminal emulator is ... hard to explain? I tried looking at wikipedia to explain it, but it didn't help. It's a thing where you put in text commands instead of clicking on things (like DOS used to be, but I think that was before your time.) Probably called something different in other systems and platforms, but it's a command line interface. DOS prompt? C:\ prompt?

It might also be that the Mac version needs this and other platforms don't, so it's probably best if you go to the page linked above and find the help thing that applies best to your system.

Dreamwidth also might have something built in now to upload from other journals, but I really don't know. I set this up a few years back and it works as well as I need it to, when I remember to run the script.

Yeah, DW has a thing now. I'll check up on that link.

I feel badly (but oh so thankful) because we had basically nothing happen at our house, but my co-workers 10 miles west of us have no power. I guess no electricity is cake compared to what NYC and Jersey shore are going through though.

Haiti got whacked again too, among other places. The whole east side of the continental mass got severely pounded. Glad you're okay!
