The last post was the "Outrage" post made by Dawkins himself.

The post before that was in the thread "Moderate Christians-> morals not explained by Evolution" by user "Mr.Samsa".
The post before that was in the thread "The Second Monthly RDF Science Writing Award - Discuss& Vote" also by user "Mr.Samsa".
The post before that was in the thread "What is actually wrong with Christian Beliefs? Part 2" by user "elroywillis".

Altogether, there were another 35 posts after your last post on there :)

I stand corrected. Perhaps the last post in Earth Sciences was mine.

Download is at 70% and I am still only in summer 2013. Really shows how posting frequency dropped after the first couple of years.

2013? there was significant posting there after the 2010 debacle?

Some of that stuff could slowly experience Hawking Radiation and the world would be a better place.

Not really. A lot of current posting is in longrunning threads started before 2013. In the first page of "New Posts" alone, right now, there are 10 threads from 2010.

I know post volume is down, but 70% of posts in threads started pre-2013 isn't a measure of that, actual post counts are.

We just don’t get the frothing at the mouth fundites like we used to, and trolls have mostly moved on the social media.

First round of downloading is over. But so is my holiday.

Next steps:

1. Verify download is complete. (ETA: 3 days)
2. Download user data and avatars. (ETA: 5 days)
3. Gather meta data from downloaded data. (ETA: 10 days)
4. Download images used in forum (Only images hosted on ratskep itself, no external images). (ETA: 14 days)
5. Create offline version of files that contain corrected cross links between pages, links to downloaded offline images and have reduced overhead. (ETA: 21 days)
6. Offer packaged archive for download (ETA: 23 days)


The current raw data (Only HTML) consists of 165,627 files with altogether 16.1 GB of data. I estimate the end result will have aproximately 6GB of data, maybe 1 GB in compressed form.

Is your ETA step by step or estimation of total?

and how big will be the total package?

Total.

I can only estimate size right now. I expect about 6GB total and 1 GB compressed.
