Back Up Your Blogger Blog

downthemall_20070211.jpg
A quick way to back up your blogspot hosted blog is to use the built in search tool to dump your blog’s entire contents. Using wget, this is something that could be easily incorporated into your nightly backup script. If you know your blog has fewer than 1000 entries, just use the following URL to dump everything in XML format:
http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=1000
From Google Operating System:

To download all the photos uploaded to your blog, DownThemAll comes to the rescue. The Firefox extension lets you download all the files with a certain extension from the current page, so it’s a good way to download all the images from the previous listing.

With the full XML feed and the images, it’s just a matter of writing a quick perl script to parse and import your entries into whatever format or system you wish to work with. –Link.

  1. I have the same problem with my macbook pro: it doesn’t sleep properly half the time, it gets incredibly hot most of the time, etc. If anybody has any suggestions, I’m all ears…

  2. I had the same problem with my iLemon (MacBookPro). The reed switch in the lid fails and needs to be replaced by Apple. Be sure to backup – Apple isn’t responsible for lose of personal data. I backup my drive, nuke n pave with a fresh OS, then take it in. This was easier to get fixed than my flickering screen problem that never happens anywhere close to the Apple Store and a “super” drive that cannot read audio cd’s that magically reads problematic disks inside the Apple Store. Anyone seeing this too?

    By the way, these machines are no longer referred to as laptops. These machines are notebooks. Amazing how something can be “fixed” with some lawyers and creative marketing…

  3. I went with the smcFanControl fix and it made a world of difference on the operating temperature of my MBP – bought it in June 2006. Before installing smcFanControl, I rarely heard the internal fan switch on and it got painfully hot; after installing it, every once in a while I can hear the fans ramp up and the machine rarely gets too hot to handle.

    As always YMMV, but it works for me. I haven’t had problems with the machine cooling off every time I closed the lid and it went to sleep though. That sort of behaviour raises a warning flag in my mind…

  4. figured i just post this here – i run my systems pretty lean and rarely have anything running besides what is needed. in fact, if you go to “activity monitor” try killing a lot of things like syncserver and itunes helper. i’ve never had any sleep or heat issues (well, it’s always hot sorta) and besides a flood recently and one drive failure from 1+ year of 24/7 usage, never had any issues.

  5. Not the reality distortion field again!!
