argh

i made an attempt to move all my entries from LJ to here, but it hasn't worked. (i suspect i have far too much data to move over.) that means that i'm going to lose all those blog entries.

oh well. just another reason to dislike the russian government. [sigh]

it helps to move it in chunks. a lot of the picture links will get broken though. I can't see a lot of my pics.

Oh, hey, you might have been hit by this:

"We do have a known issue that we're trying to figure out the cause of: if your OpenID URL (your username on the other site) has a hyphen/underscore in it, sometimes the job will silently fail. This bug has been driving us up the wall for ages, and we haven't been able to find and fix it yet. If comments made by your OpenID haven't updated to show your DW account 24 hours later, you've been hit by that. We aren't sure yet if we'll be able to rely on your first authentication attempt once we fix the bug, so to be absolutely on the safe side, it's best not to delete your LJ account until we're able to fix it."

Ha, mayyyybe? Or maybe you're supposed to try repeatedly - they say it 'sometimes' fails, so another go might do the trick...

:( :( :(!

The uploader is experiencing a lot of traffic, poor darling. Looks like updates are posted on dw-maintenance and/or dw-news.

Perhaps submit a support ticket, too - even if they can't help now, maybe you'll get a solved tickety update when fixed?

Doh, I accidentally deleted a previous comment. Still figuring out Dreamwidth, heh!

ANYWAY, ljArchive for PC could be an option - worked pretty well for me. The Mac version is old and busted, so you might have to get the Viking to do it. I'll look into it a little more tonight when I get home.

But yeah, we're going to have to sign in at least one more time to delete our journals, might as well backup at the same time.
