Historical record

You know, I wish I'd kept up using Livejournal from the period 2002-2004 when I was in the States. It's turned out to be quite a significant period historically and it would be useful to be able to look back.

I did blog quite a lot, but a lot of it was using MT and Wordpress, and those sites are down now, and for technical reasons it is a bit hard to get them up again.

Have you got the database files? I managed to store one of my old blogs on a free wordpress.com bit without a problem, and they'll take imports from pretty much anything these days.

I do have them somewhere. I am going to try to reinstate them, but all of my googling will be screwed up. Oh well, I suspect it's all gone anyway.

Have you checked to see if MT didn't push copies of your posts into a backup folder on your HD. It's been so long since I had mine I don't remember if I did it manually or if it was a feature, but I found all the posts I did using it.

I imported the MT posts into Wordpress so I have all those, but I'm discovering that trying to import a bunch of posts and comments from a SQL dump of the databases used by a two-year-old version of Wordpress is a little... challenging. The table structure has all changed. But at least I have the text.

Yeah it's good you have the text. You can always re-format if you get bored enough

I started reading your journal back when you were living in the Philadelphia area. (Not that that has anything to do with getting your files back or anything.)
