Regarding grabbing images from Google (such those linked in the G+Exporter files)

Are there known tools around that can mass download images from URLs without triggering any kind of throttling or denial from Google's servers?

FYI
After some initial skepticism, I finally tried this tool - and - I am sold.

This tool can export in a well documented JSON format, as well as in WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR=XML). It can grab your profile posts, pages, collections, and communities, both posts and comments.

If you have a WordPress site, you can directly import all your G+ posts from the latter. Note that the export tool does not download the images, but the WP importer can do that for you.

The following appears to not be included
- +1's
but those are hardly relevant after you migrate content.

So - if you want to grab your G+ content, don't waste your time on Google Takeout, as that is a total mess. This is hands down the best G+ export tool I've tried so far.

It is rather hard to answer a post where comments are disabled, +Alberto Paganini

Which of the many statistics methods are you thinking of?
Is there a function to retrieve the statistical trend in Delphi ? I cannot find it.

Edit: "Since Dreamwidth is built on a legacy code base that has been around for almost two decades, adding support for newer web technologies is no easy task, and most of our site development is volunteer-driven."

Account deleted.


If you are looking for a new platform to self-publish on, have a look at http://www.dreamwidth.org - which has several interesting features. It is still young, and feels a bit raw - but I like the ideas which has gone into this.

I am trying it out at https://larsfosdal.dreamwidth.org

It has a decent list of "services", some which depend on the account type
https://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=4

It has reasonable operating principles
https://www.dreamwidth.org/legal/principles

Pros:
- No ads
- Tags
- Circles
- Communities
- Your posts can be read without being logged in
- Your posts are crawled and can be found by search engines
- Incoming RSS feed aggregation, which again can be shared with others
- Your posts as RSS feeds
- A reading list, which consts of the feeds (persons, circles, communities, RSS feeds) that you subscribe to
- Basic account is free, paid accounts are reasonably priced
- It has an internal economy system that can be used to buy services, or be gifted to others for them to use

Cons:
- Page Styles are not very ... stylish - but can be amended
- No syntax highlighting (but is planned)
- Oldschool editors
- No markdown There is markdown support
- No sign in with Google/Twitter/etc
- No two-factor authentication
- Looks like crap on mobile
- Not yet widely used
