Blog archive

I downloaded and archived all of my blog entries today in order to back them up to DVD along with all of my other files, which I usually do twice a year. In downloading all of my blog entries, I also did a word count. The 1,600+ entries total nearly 500,000 words! Uncompressed, they measure just over 3 MB, but since it is entirely plain text (or XML at any rate) that should shrink substantially once compressed.
