Please let me know your feedback. I'm hoping this is a useful tool that will provide some value for people. If it proves to be popular, it could then be expanded to other services, etc...
I'd happily pay $20 for that (and we all know HN comment anecdote is evidence).
Edit: Sorry misread the to scriptogr.am
While posterous demise makes tumblr the winner of the space, I do think its social features/direction really gets in the way for those that just want a simple and fast blog.
Some more links for anyone interested hint, hint, wink, wink:
* [ import-from-tumblr.js][github 2]
* [Tumblr to Jekyll migration][github 3]
* [ Migrating from Tumblr to Jekyll][55minutes]
* [Markdown to HTML to Markdown to…][pennywised]
My only complaint was that I had to give my username/password, but @jazzychad tells me that's the only form of auth for the Posterous API, sadly. If you want to change your password before giving it away, here's the linky: http://posterous.com/#account/edit
Update (~10 minutes later): First export is done. Fast S3 download, nice in-archive directory structure, both HTML and JSON outputs, both scales and original media. Everything I could have asked for.
However, if you are paranoid like me and want to change your password anyway, please don't change it back before your exports finish :)
"If you are looking for a free solution, you can read the Posterous API documentation to create your own backups."
Well said and great job on the tool Chad! If had a posterous blog, this would be a $9 no-brainer.
