brief update

Mar 12th, 2020 at 2:53 PM · health, wtf an update, random, thinking out loud
I'm not sure what I want to write about, but I wanted to pop in and say at least this:

My local people and I are well. Weather's getting mild. Nobody has a virus, so far as I know. Come to think, my household got a little windfall, and a well-timed one too. Things aren't super-amazing, but they're fine and we're fine and that's better than some.

I'm still poking around the internet, up to my usual habits of reading without posting much. I keep on top of my Dreamwidth reading page and triage my Twitter at least daily. (I also check my email, made a dismayed face at the spam, and exit right back out, as a general rule. Sorry not sorry, etc.)

Take care of yourself. See you 'round another day.

Dreamwidth backup clients (with bonus illness)

I am sick. Boo! Common cold, sore throat, exhausted, but pretty much pain free. The offspring seems uninfected. Good thing I have plenty of hand soap.

I keep forgetting to ask this... good Dreamwidth people, what are you using to backup your Dw account(s)? I had been using ljarchive but it started choking when I tried to backup a community with comments. I think it began around the time Dw forced HTTPS but I can't be sure.

Anyway, rec me your Dw backup software, please! I have seen http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/notes/Compatible_clients and https://zvi.dreamwidth.org/477997.html , but they are oooooold and I don't have the energy to try all the relevant options in sequence.

(If you want to tailor an answer to me specifically: I'm on Win 10. I'd prefer a GUI but I can work with a command line - I used to do a little MU* Telnetting, learned to FTP on the Windows command line, that sort of thing. I don't have perl or anything installed on my computer, but if I need it to make my backup dreams come true, I'm willing to give it a go.)
