Given the recent wackiness with Typepad, I thought it would be a good idea to export all my posts as a backup. I went through all the steps and I thought to myself, 'This isn't hard to do but if you don't even know this exists you're pretty much screwed.'
I have created this short video tutorial on how to export your posts from Typepad to help others do it for themselves. Right click on the link to save it to your desktop (the video is in Quicktime and clocks in around 10 megs for about 4 minutes of video).
Let me know if you found it useful and perhaps I'll do some more of these screencasts.
