Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] turnberryknkn  who provided me an answer to a long sought out concern about backing up my LJ. 

Go here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ljarchive/

He has been using it for years and is quite pleased.  Per his entry (and all of his are public):

"So, as all of you know by now, tomorrow, LJ is scheduled to go offline for four hours as the whole of LiveJournal moves from it's current datacenter in San Francisco to a new datacenter in Montana (link).

Now, just in case you're interested in backing up and downloading your LJ -- *and* all your comments -- before LJ attempts to make the Big Move happen...

I've used the program ljArchive for many years, and have been very pleased with it. It not only downloads all my entries -- *all* of them, including all my Private entries [1] -- it downloads all comments on all entries. And provides a neat graphic interface, by which I can read my LJ even completely offline -- or even if LJ were to catastrophically disappear. And it automatically refreshes it's backup every time I fire up the program. As a final bonus, it allows me to conveniently search my entire LJ by word or phrase - something LJ itself doesn't conveniently allow me to do.

You can download the program here -- yes, technically it's a beta, but it's run just fine for me for years.

Thanks [livejournal.com profile] turnberryknkn !!!
