i was just reading about an AOL member who had his AOL Journal deleted by the "powers that be" .. but that isn't what this entry is about .. this entry is about retrieving deleted journals
the trick is that you have to act
quickly !!! as soon as you discover your journal has been deleted .. if
you go to www. google.com, you can bring up their cache of your
journal, entry by entry and copy it to a safe place .. including all the
comments left for you by your readers
go to www.google.com
type in the URL for your deleted journal: http://journals.aol.com/his1desire/GirlsHeadNoise
select: Show Google's cache of journals.aol.com/his1desire/GirlsHeadNoise
will allow you to copy the first 10 entries .. if you want to copy more
entries along with the comments, you need to google the entire URL for
each journal entry which will also bring up the comments (example ..
you have one entire entry cache googled, merely check the bottom of the
journal entry for the previous entries url and copy and paste each of
the entries and comments to a "safe place"
you do need to act quickly because the cache will come up empty during the next sweep of your journal if the journal is gone
