Features: Unlike similar programs, ALJ downloading journal simultaneously using several threads, which makes it slightly faster and also it is downloading posts with more than 1 page of comments.
Since some journals could be really big in size, program breaks plain file into smaller pieces of 1MB, so that IE can handle this files. All parts are linked to each other for easy navigation and program itself can re-use these files for downloading new entries, which eliminates need of keeping original pages received from livejournal web site.
Because plain file is at least 2-4 times more compact than original pages, this could save you lots of disk space and reduces searching time through the pages. Program uses IE cookie in your system when its downloading, so it will see your and other peoples posts according to your actual permissions.
