LiveJournal Client Discussions
There's a new version of LJSM, Livejournal backup tool.
Now it uses 'sessiongenerate' call of LJ client protocol for login instead of /login.bml screen scraping.
See http://www.offtopia.net/ljsm/index_en.html for download links, my previous post in this community for some discussion.
Saving someone else's journal that you do not own is not allowed.
You are allowed access to your own content for backup purposes as well as content you control by being a maintainer of a community/shared account. We do not allow access to accounts you do not control except in web browsers for the purpose of human viewing.
This has been our policy for ages now. I would try to dig up old discussions here, but I don't have time right now. There should be discussions about it in either lj_dev
sometime in the past year.

My tool brings the possibility to save any journal in bandwidth effective (and in accordance with the bot policy) way, but of course it shoud be used in compliance with LJ's TOS.
