    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if anyone remembers me on here, it's been a while. I was casually browsing my old posts and was wondering if there was a way to download the posts I've made in threads. I was looking at some posts I made here in 2003 that really made me crack up. Can't even believe I was the person who wrote them. I guess 14 years of aging will do that to you. Anyway, if anyone knows how I could save the posts, I'd greatly appreciate it. If any of the old timers are still around - hello :)

    You'd need some kind of tool with database access as the easiest route.

    Alternatively, you might be able to script something that trawls through all your posts one by one and snags it... but that'd require some programming and knowledge of how to sequentially access your posts.

    OR... the mods could just distribute the ****ing database of public area messages like some of us have wanted, to forever memorialize the good old days. THIS IS BIGGER THAN YOU!
