Archiving the forum/wiki   

Postby mad_ady » Tue May 21, 2019 1:08 am

Well, it's been years since I started a new thread.

I've been thinking - I'm not sure for how long the forum/wiki will survive on the internet, given that the community has mostly moved on. I would like to preserve it (for myself mostly) so that in the future I can run some AI script on it and have it impersonate the users :D

I was thinking of scraping it with httrack (https://forum.httrack.com/readmsg/16576 ... index.html). Any suggestions for a better way?

YAY!
Let's download the whole internet on a 1.44MB floppy disk!
Not sure what your precious AI bot will find in this incredible forum mess ;-)
The good old days ;-)
So, this was the first posting in 2020!
Take care about Corona everyone!

We'll let the AI decide what is relevant. But, like it or not, this forum has been a fun part of some of our lives and has helped us through difficult times (in my case becoming a parent...)

I fully agree, I still remember you celebrating your first born on the forum, and that you were happy to "flee" the diaper-rush here ;-)

We were in the same boat at the same time, good ol' days!

These kids will remember 2020 as the Chinese Flu Pandemie.

Take care, my friend!
