Hi Ron - I just posted this in thetathx1138
's journal and thought you might be interested.
After following the Mac directions (and hitting return after each of the "Type:" instructions), all my journal comments and entries have downloaded to Users -> [my computer username] -> ljdump1.2 -> dianalily
Within the dianalily file is the entire download. There are documents starting with "C" and with "L". I dragged one of each to RichText to open (if I just click on the document, an empty browser window opens up).
The "C" documents are all comments made in reply to an entry, date included.
The "L" documents are also numbered in sequential order and are my journal entries. And they're in XML format. So the date is included, but the format is decidedly not elegant.
I hope this helps you! I'm not a Mac expert by any means but wanted to let you know following those instructions you posted did achieve the desired result of archiving my LJ.
