Hi

Is it possible to bring over the old DP forum somehow.  I'm sure there is a wealth of info in the 3000 odd messages.  Probably most have been dealt with or the results added to the wiki but it might be nice to tuck it away somewhere.

Let's wait and see if someone comes up with an idea to format it.  If you can make available a chunk of it, I'll take a look at Open Office (HTML).  I don't mind taking on the task if the solution is Linux or can run on Wine.  A lot of valuable info to archive somehow - even if it's tucked off in a corner somewhere.

There is no direct way to import threads into this database, but I guess the easiest way would something around creating a table with this data (i.e. excel), in order to dump it into this database using phpadmin for example.

Dunno if it'll work, but probably will.

As for the excel compilation, I have no available time to do it; the phpadmin part I can have a try. If you want, start off by creating a first set of threads and I'll have a go at it.


note: the data structure should be, at least:

Perhaps you can send me a junk to see exactly what you have.  I took a random page this morning and I've been playing with that.  There is some value in just the file as the search tool in a word processor will go through it to find something specific.  That can be the better-than-nothing way  :D  I just unhid my email account so if you want, you can send me 5k-10k chunk (or whatever you think is appropriate.  I have a few posts in other forums to see if someone else has a solution.  Meanwhile I'll play.
