Backup Blog Incrementally - Blogger Backup Utility Free

If your blog has too much post and blogger is long time to export or you are not able to export your blogger posts then here is the solution for that. Greg Duncan has created a free blogger backup software that's extremely easy-to-use and gives lot of control over the backup process

Blogger Backup is a small open-source Windows tool that, well, backups the posts and comments from a Blogger blog. The Blogger Backup utility is intended to be a simple utility to backup to local disk your Blogger posts. Click here to download page
In this tool you can also specify following details:

  • You want to back up all posts in to single file or one file per post.
  • Set of duration for which you want to back up the posts
  • Do you want to backup comments or not?
  • Limit on number of posts per file
  • Get all posts or get only selected number of recent posts

Once you have all these files on your computer, you could write a tool that imports them to a database or use Blogger's API to recreate the blog. In fact, this tool also uses Blogger's API to get the feeds. You can also use backup xml file to import posts using "Import Blog" at "Settings -> Basic".

Also Please check following shell script to back up your blog in to 100 posts per file:

# backup script for new blogger
for x in 1 101 201 301 401; do
curl -m 300 -s "$URL&start-index=$x" > $1-$x-atom
gzip $1-$x-atom
sleep 10

#If you have fewer than 500 posts at the moment... If you have more posts then just modify the line "for x in 1 101 201 301 401 501 601 701; do" and so on for more posts also you can increase the number of posts per page by changing this line "URL=http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=100"
specify any number instead of 100

Million Dollar Motorcycles

By Stephen Milioti
Japanese artists are renowned for their Zen-like patience, but spending 7,500 hours hand-crafting a motorcycle would seem to push that to absurd lengths - until you see the motorcycle. Then you wonder how Chicara Nagata managed to build something so stunning in so little time.
Nagata's award-winning motorcycles are breathtaking works of art, so it is fitting that three of them are featured in an exhibit at New York's Ippodo Gallery and the Contemporary Asian Art Fair. The bikes are as meticulously crafted as they are stunningly detailed, blending vintage parts with modern design to create motorcycles that are simultaneously retro and futuristic.
Nagata's art pays tribute to the very machines that almost killed him, and to the people who saved him. "There are many ways a man can express himself, but there are not many things I can do," he writes in the notes accompanying his exhibit. "I have found something on which I will pour my life."
Nagata, 46, was 16 when a motorcycle accident nearly killed him. He endured eight months of intensive therapy and several blood transfusions during his recovery, all the while wondering why he should survive so horrible an accident when so many others haven't. Nagata, whose name means "power," decided to honor those who had died, and those who saved him, by creating art. He became a graphic designer in 1982 and launched his own studio a decade later.
His love affair with motorcycles was rekindled in 1993 when he started building his first custom. It took him seven years. Whereas most motorcycle "builders" do little more than open the Fat Book parts catalog and start ordering parts they simply bolt together in a week or two, Nagata hand-crafts everything but the drivetrains. The frames, the suspension components, even the throttle assemblies and hand controls are designed and made by Nagata.
He's built 13 bikes so far. Nagata won the grand prize in the 2006 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building for Chicara Art I, a sleek retro-ride powered by a 1939 Harley-Davidson U motor. He took second place last year with Chicara Art II, which features a 1942 Harley WLA motor. The three bikes featured at Ippodo can be had for $1 million apiece which, given the level of workmanship, strikes us as a bargain.

As with all of Nagata's bikes, all parts -- hand controls, foot controls, throttle and clutch linkages, everything -- but the engine and drivetrain are hand-crafted. The bike was completed this year.

PSP 2 by Tai Chiem

Designer Tai Chiem has come out with the PSP 2 design. This concept comes with OLED display that can be rolled up when not in use. It features an electric charge powering the display, stereo speakers on either side double as a jog wheel and camera control. Nice work but I’m sure that it is not going to happen, for PSP I mean, could be useful for other devices maybe to come in that shape. More pictures after the break.

Sony just barely updated the PSP but designer Tai Chiem is already thinking about the next iteration. His design calls for a flexible OLED display that can be conveniently rolled. An electric charge powering the display stiffens it while providing near bezeless prime real estate for gaming. Stereo speakers on either side double as a jog wheel and camera control. He also envisages Sony finally implementing two joysticks. Pipe dream or not, it’s sexy and lives up to its name; it don’t get any more portable than this.
