Oh I saved lots of Abuzz threads on my HD, by the way ... most all threads I'd been in until November 2002 ... some 350 threads, altogether. So if, later, you remember a thread you would have liked to keep and you remember I was in it, I can send you the file ...
Mind you, i saved 'em html only, because for one, if you save the full webpage it comes with a load of extra little files, which you save over and again for every new thread you save, and I didnt had the space for that (its 70 mb as it is); and secondly, I kept getting error messages if I tried to save complete webpages anyway, so I had
to resort to html only. (I saved most of 'em at two previous end-is-near warnings, back in April '01 and August '02 ...)
Downside: graphically, its a mess. For now, if i open the files while I'm online they still look fine, probably cause the browser looks up all the extras from the abuzz site, but that will soon be no more. So after that, it will always look the way it now looks if i open 'em off-line: you can read each of the posts, but against a scrambled background that makes the whole thing harder to read, and takes some of the pleasure out of it. Plus, it doesnt show the dates of the posts, that i really hadnt noticed yet, it sucks.
But yeah, all the actual posts, all the text, I have it for every thread I was ever in (you're anal or you're not) - just updated the remaining ones.
