Do you have a copy of DNR on your HD?

Postby YarpsDat on Sun Feb 08, 2004 3:46 am

I have a copy.
Actually, I have two: 15 posts per page, and 20 posts per page.
You are the Non. You must go now, and never return."

"1.Scan in high res 2.tweak with curves,levels or something to clean up the scan (or use channel mixer to remove blue pencil lines) 3.Add colour using a layer set to multiply. 4.Add wordbubbles and text as vector shapes. 5. Merge all layers. 6.resize to the web size. 7. Export/Save for Web" that's all I know about webcomicking.

Might you also have the Anti-Do Not Reply thread somewhere?
Odd that "Skype" isn't one of the options in the profile. Granted, MSN is now defunct and Skype its replacement . . .

No, sorry. For some reason it never occured to me to save it, maybe because I saw it all, and most of it was "arrgh someone bumped DNR again, I must post here, bump" "bump" "bump"
or "they have cheese and cookies in DNR, we must bring cheese and cookies for ADNR!" "bump" "bump"


And I never liked that thread. But it's still sad to have them both go.

Not to sound stupid, but how do you save a whole thread?

Not to sound even more stupid, but WHY would you save a whole thread. Especially one like DNR? I could understand one with a tutorial... or some other important information in it.... but.... DNR was mostly just random stuff.

As was said before, its like a time capsule of past users... a record of the insane ramblings of a few dedicated individuals... though the ranks changed over the years, the numbers stayed relatively constant... songs, movie scripts, maria and michelle induced yaoi fests normally centering around matt lim... stuff like that.

At the moment the zip (well, actually a .rar file) is bigger than 3MB.

I'll try to figure a way to shrink it...

I know for a fact that it shouldn't be that big, because there were 177 pages, 20 posts/page, and hardly ever the post would be bigger than 1000 letters (especially in dnr), that means it should be 3,5MB UNcompressed.
Meanwhile, all the obsolete html in the files bloats them, so it's 25MB uncompressed (just html).
There are headers and footers that make up 90% of the files, I'll try to code something to remove them.



BTW, how to save a thread?
In short threads using save-as on all pages is ok.
In longer 7-10 pages I find it's better to "right-click-save-as" because othervise you end up saving all the icons a number of times and that's actually wasting space.

In special cases like DNR I fint it's easiest to create a file with links to all the pages
ie:
<a href="http://forums.keenspace.com/viewtopic.php?t=666&start=0">1</a>
<a href="http://forums.keenspace.com/viewtopic.php?t=666&start=20">2</a>
<a href="http://forums.keenspace.com/viewtopic.php?t=666&start=40">3</a>
.
.
.
(the file can be generated with a simple script, or made with copy-paste and a bit of editing)

And then right-click-save-as all of them. Yes, that required 177 mouseclicks, and about a thousand keyboard strokes, but it took under 15 minutes.

Of course using a webspider is an option to.


Once I shrink the zip to reasonable size, or give up on doing it I'll redistribute it to the needing.

Holy shit!! 3 megs??!!! Damn Yarps, you get a golden medal for excellence for preserving a piece of history. Yeah it's a damn shame to see the original DNR go, it was my favorite thread for nearly a year. The new copies just don't have the same feeling...That can be fixed!

Help! I think I need MariaandMichelle's help to get this BOY elephant off of me!

Actually... what were you trying to do?
I hope you didn't run a spider (one of them make-page-viewable-offline thingies) telling it to start at the first page of DNR...

That could help; if you cut him in on the royalties after you sell the tape, it would help pay the hospital and therapy bills.
