I used a program http://www.httrack.com/ to take a snapshot of the entire forum's in lofi format. I spidered the site at a slow speed and bandwidth so as to neither kill the forum nor my ADSL line!

I created a squashfs file system (I had to use an old version of mksquashfs to make it compatible with cacko), which you can store on your memory card and loopback mount on either the Z or a linux box (and probably OSX), e.g.:
CODE
   mkdir /mnt/oesfforlofi
   mount -t squashfs -o loop /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs /mnt/oesfforlofi
-or-
   mount -t squashfs -o loop /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs.nmz /mnt/oesfforlofi


or add to /etc/fstab:
CODE
  /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs /mnt/oesfforlofi squashfs loop,noauto,noatime,ro 0 0


There are two versions of the squashfs archive, one with and one without the .nmz suffix. The latter has a free-text search function using Namazu .

Please download it from Antikz's mirror at
oesfforlofi.squashfs.nmz -with search, 64MB or oesfforlofi.squashfs without search, 32MB; original files at my downloads


--edit again 20061130
Added nmz details with Antikz's kind mirroring

I originally used cramfs but couldn't mount the archive on my linux/x86 box, so I tried squashfs and that worked on both and was quite a bit smaller than a zipfile; must use squashfs v2 as v3 is incompatible with Cacko's v2.

It works for me, thank you again speculatrix.
It loads faster than the unzipped archive does for me.
It took about 20 secs to go from clicking on "index.html" to loading the "Front Page" of OESF Forums. smile.gif
Clicking "Hardware Mods" took 3 secs to open that subforum.

I'm going to delete the set of files that I unzipped onto my hard drive, since these take quite a bit longer to load.

This makes the OESF Forums archive truly portable.
