Save Vertaine's Rants from EB&G
« on: January 20, 2011, 12:31:27 am »
I'd like to know if there are a couple of other spags willing to crawl through EB&G with me and move stuff to Cramulus' wiki...



Any takers?

Any other forum you want me to do?

Sweet!

Oooh, not sure. Maybe some-one more familiar with that forum can speak up?

Ah, maybe some manual archiving would be worth it then. Here's a link to all the posts started by V

I've saved everything in raw data form, when I have some more time (I'm currently working seven days a week and have been since Christmas) I'll strip down the data pull the name of the rant from the file and replace the filename with it, then remove all the html and bundle it all together as a pdf or something.
Basically the same thing I've been meaning to do with the Or Kill Me dump I made a few months back.

Right on, sounds good. I've started a page for Verthaine on Cram's wiki:

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/cramulus/index.php?title=Verthaine

And C&P one rant. I need to re-learn wiki formatting damnit.

Here's a link to the raw data from there, it's still perfectly viewable, its just the naming convention is horrible. If you do a search verthain on that folder you will get all his threads.

Easier still, if you know the name of the rant do a search on the folder with that and it should bring it up straight away.

This file is 22 meg in case anyone is watching a download limit or something.

Verthaine also has some great material in the Confrontation Corner, as well. Most of it was aimed at the folks from TCC and MW a lot of it is in other people's threads.  If I can think of any other good places to mine for his stuff, I'll post it here.

Getting the data from confrontation corner wont be a problem, but picking through it afterwards for the good stuff could be a nightmare.

I'm pretty sure that all the important stuff I posted over there was also x-posted here, or saved on my drive, so you don't have to bother with collecting my stuff from over there.

I can't seem to find the pun thread over there.  Did it get deep sixed?  Were they THAT bad?   :lol:

They were terrible!   :wink:

Seriously, tho...Liam did some semi-drunken housekeeping a little while back and I don't know if he moved that thread to the archives or if he deep sixed it.

This is why he isn't allowed to wash the dishes when he's drunk. He's sick in bed and sound asleep right now, but I'll ask him when he wakes up, okay?

It's not a big deal so no worries if it isn't there or tucked away in some inaccessible recess. 

More than likely any of the "good ones" were cross posted here at some point.

I just checked out the attic and the thread's not there, and I can't find it anywhere on the fourms, either. It's almost certainly gone. I'm sorry.
