Computer Help

Okay all you computer genius types, old coot needs help (WELL doesn’t NEED, but would like some.)

I bought me a one terabyte external hard drive.  I have all kinds of stuff I would like to put on it, and I even know how to do some of the stuff I want to do.

What I don’t know how to do, my not be possible but I would sure like to do it.  I want to archive my blog on this hard drive-if possible, I would like to include the comments.  I made a start on doing this last year by turning all (well the first fifty or so) of my posts into Word documents and saving them in a folder.  Talk about a time taking pain in the - - -.  No archive is worth that much fiddlin around unless you can pay someone else to do it, but it seems to me that someone ought to know a way to just do some kind of a “select all” , push a button and go away for an hour or two while the computer does its job.  Possible?  I don’t know, but if it is, and someone can give me directions – Maybe.  I confess that RaDena gave me directions a couple of years ago how to put her blog on my blog list, and I tried them all and screwed it and much of the rest of the blog list up, but one major screw up does not a total catastrophe make (and what can I screw up except my new hard drive?

I archive mine using the word document method though I do a month of posts at a time. I just go down to my archive list on my sidebar and select the month I want to archive. Using my mouse, I just click and drag to highlight the entire month and copy and paste it into a word document. It takes me about fifteen or twenty minutes to do an entire years worth of posts that way.

That seems pretty practical. Do you get you comments that was?

No I don't get the comments because in order to do that, I would have to go one post at a time.
