Using Back Street Browser

Having retrieved the journal with this program, you cannot navigate through it the way you would do on the Net. The journal is saved to disk under the following directory structure

Name of journal (as in the URL)
Number of entry

You'll have to navigate through the journal using the directory structure, NOT with the normal navigational buttons. Comments cannot be retrieved, and certain graphics are also not displayed. Any graphics, linked to AOL Pictures or AOL Hometown will be lost after November 1st, 2008. With the amount of time until October 31st, it is unlikely to be practicable to relink all the graphics on a blog – remember your own transfer?

The restrictions of this method are particularly in evidence when viewing the saved journal off-line.

The front page shows the first 10 entries.
