ALJ is a program for exporting complete user's journal including all comments into plain files. Once journal is downloaded, program can check if new entries are available, download them and add to plain file.
Features: Unlike similar programs, like ljsm and "LiveJournal Download", ALJ downloading journal simultaneously in several streams, which makes it slightly faster and also downloading posts with more than 1 page of comments. Since some journals could be really big in size, program breaks plain file into smaller pieces of 1MB, so that IE can handle this files. All parts are linked to each others for easy navigation and program itself can re-use this files for downloading new entries, which eliminates need of keeping original pages received from livejournal web site. Because plain file is at least 2-4 times more compact than original pages, this could save you lots of disk space and reduces searching time through the pages. Program uses IE cookie in your system when its downloading, so it will see your and other people's posts according to your actual permissions.
How to use: enter user name, press Index. After indexing is completed, press Get. You can press stop if you want to stop downloading, it can be resumed later. Program will show you how many total links this jourmal has and how many percents are aleady downloaded. After downloading is finished, plain text version will be in Txt subfolder of the program.
If plain text version is corrupted for some reason, press Restore button and it will be re-created from available downloaded pages.
If you like it, try it and tell me what you think.

when I have more than 50 comments in a post, is there any way I can download all of them? because livejournal will group them in threads and won't show them all in the comments page...
I have this problem using ljsm and also using your alj program... it would be really nice to be able to solve this...

otherwise, I tried alj and everything seemed to be fine :)
great work!

Have you tried my program? It should handle this. It will create big plain file with all posts and comments.

Re:

Hi!
after I wrote that comment I found out that your program handles this... I was looking at the wrong files, not the big plain files but the other ones, one per post.
this looks really good! It seems to be working perfectly! :)

thanks! :)
