Please supply offline version

do to the nature of the webstite I do not like to visit it often. It would be nice if there was a downloadable version of the website w/ forum (snapshot). This could be shared on bittorrent or emule.

Hey there -

Thanks for the suggestion! We occasionally get requests for an offline version of the site but we've been reluctant to produce one for several reasons. First, the only practical way for us to do this would be using third-party site spidering software, and this can already be done by any user who is so inclined. Also, the sheer enormity of the file would make it somewhat impractical. The BB database is currently about 1.5 GB, and that's just the raw data - once you add the HTML for each thread it would easily double in size. Our BB archives would add another gig, so when all is said and done even a highly compressed copy of our boards would still be multiple gigs in size. And that's just for text - if we include all the images which have been uploaded by our users we'd be looking at over 10 GB of data, and if we don't include them then most threads would have numerous broken images. Also, a local copy of the board would lack any sort of search functionality which would severely limit its usefulness. Ultimately, it seems like a rather impractical solution even though I can think of ways in which it would come in handy.

If you're concerned about visiting this site due to its content, let me suggest that you look into the use of proxy servers to protect your anonymity. Here's a good introduction to anonymous surfing and a list of public proxy servers. If you have any questions or need help getting started, I'll be glad to offer assistance.

Thanks for the suggestion though, and sorry it isn't more doable!

Peace,

-Y

Strange, it still works fine for me. Sounds like maybe you should scan your computer for spyware. In the meantime, perhaps you'd have more success with the Google cache of the page. Good luck!

Peace,

-Y

The funny thing is that I have no spyware on my computer I am using linux. I would try refreshing that page because I am still getting a porn link, strange.
