I logged on to the SOR forum last night and saved a number of posts by just copying them into a word file (pictures included). It seems to work well for those that are interested and is a bit of insurance in case Woody can't recreate some of the old posts.

Glad to see we have a new home

Cheers, Hugh

I used the search function , and simply searched for all posts with a " " in them :)) . Of course 200 immediately popped up ... I checked the source code , and they appear to be completely sequential ... from 000001 onwards . A bit of a chore , but you could click on each link/post and when it comes up , "select all" and past it into a word file as suggested .

I wish I had the brains to write some simple code to do that for us ... sorry .

Another thought , isn't there software on the web that allows you to 'grab' a site and view it 'offline' ? Do they allow one to dig so many levels into the site ? If so , I wonder if that would work .. too little , too late eh ?

Re:  ;DRe: Saving SOR posts

Hugh,

Who'd ya leave out? :D
ahem...well a number of people who shall remain nameless...although if this site ever goes down I do plan to save the fat lady with the thong picture (FLWTTP) :D

I wonder if Tyler is correct, is there a simple way to capture the site 'off line' or can you only capture one page at a time?

Cheers, Hugh

It wouldn't take much space certainly not enough to require a DVD. SOR ran UBB mostly stock, with very few additional graphics. Even without ever pruning posts, which I don't think SOR ever did did, the entire forum probably took less than 6MB.

Just spoke with SOR....their forum software and data outta be in my hands soon. Will experiment a bit with it, and play with the options for regeneration in this software or tranferring this data to that forum software. (I do NOT wanna run both at once! lol)

Will keep everyone posted as things happen...

Woody - hey man, we're all super appreciative of ya :bow: for doing all this, but dude, how do you actually ever have time to work to pay for all your junk? Especially since it seems you have an addiction to rolling. :flipoff2:
