How best to backup/move a strange old blog

As part of hoovering up old blogs and content before more disappear, I'm stuck with the most difficult blog in terms of format; this one (Digital Sands). Is there an efficient way of saving both the posts and the comments to make publicly available elsewhere. [more inside]

Backing up an open disk image?

Based on your answers to my prior question, I keep sensitive files on my Mac in an encrypted disk image. I back up my Mac to Time Machine, plus a local external Superduper! clone, and to Crashplan. How do I ensure those backups accurately record the disk image--do I have to eject the disk image or will the backups copy the open (mounted) disk? [more inside]

Backing up my old emails

At work I'm using a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.7.4, running Outlook 2011. Today, I have to ship off this computer to get an upgrade and security update, and they will be wiping out the contents of the hard drive. They've left us very minimal instructions to back up any files we need. For me, the absolute most important thing is having access to all of my old emails and their attachments. So, QUESTION: how do I backup all of my emails in Outlook so that I'll be able to access them on my newly-wiped computer? Where are email files stored on my computer? How can I back up the attachments on the old emails? How do I avert total disaster?

Archiving Files

Does anyone have any good picture/file archiving software? Specifically, I'm looking for a Windows or linux program that will do the following:

1) Support full and differential or incremental backups of directories (i.e.: just the ones that have changed since the last backup or the first backup).

2) Burn both CDs and DVDs (not using other packet-writing software).

3) Create normally readable, uncompressed discs (not blob files that can only be read by the same program).

4) Preferably, include an html preview of the whole backup set on each disc.

Basically, I think I'm looking for the exact feature set of Archive Creator, but with incremental backups or "all files created since" features, which it does not seem to do.
