Another useful thing: the version of ljArchive which doesn't have a comment-importing bug

http://www.memory-prime.de/lja/LJa.html

Unfortunately ljArchive doesn't work for Dreamwidth, at least not for me*, but it's still one of the best ways of getting a local copy of all your posts and comments from there.

* It seems to get stuck perpetually downloading the manifest, I am meaning to file a support ticket re myself sponsoring a dev to investigate/fix this after the current rush is over).

ljArchive won't pull your assets (images etc) though so if they drop off the net they'll also vanish from the local view. I am currently investigating https://blogbooker.com/ as an alternative for archiving material which is too old to attract new comments :)
