I wouldn't mind doing that Bob, but ultimately I was thinking that one forum would be completely frozen, never changing, yet still available and searchable for all. The second forum would be new, active, and folks could reference links to the old forum.

This guy shows how to archive it to HTML:
https://bertjohnson.com/blog/archive-vbulletin-to-html/

This site provides more detail:
https://blog.madadipouya.com/2016/04...ts-using-wget/

I don't know how heavy this hits the server and I suspect Narflex could more easily run it locally and provide the bundle for whoever wants to host it someday. The second link does provide a limit rate which I'm guessing throttles it to play nicely.

But it can still be exploit heck as long as it running out software I don't think lock it down would any good

That maybe the best way of going about it but I give conversion a shot and see how it goes

Sorry that was my mistake, I thought that there was a problem on my mobile that turned out to be the javascript malware that was on the site.

Notice thereís only a handful of actual members logged in. Iím guessing a lot of those guests are bots and not real people.

yes, letís hope he does. Or take it private somehow so the REAL users are the only ones with access, if thatís possible. Maybe a HD unit serial # or similar?

Assuming we have volunteers, is there any reason why we can't just assume management of this site and keep things as they are?

Is Jeff the only administrator?

HTTrack Website Copier

Has anyone had any experience with this app? Just downloaded it and am playing around, although not quite sure what it's cataloging at the moment

I've been monitoring this since you posted it. I don't know if it's always shown that many, or a recent development. From reading other posts it seems the site was hacked, and if the guest count is any indication, still being targeted.

It's worrisome. If this site goes down again, I fear it may be game over without active administrators. How about moderators? I see SHS has a mod tag.

All good questions. What Iím confused about is how many of the old guard, Narflex, Opus4, Fuzzy etc. even use SageTV anymore. With some of the more prolific plugin developers fading away, it would seem we need fresh, computer savvy minds (which I sadly am not).

The problem is that fresh computer savvy folks are not watching lienar TV, they are far more likely to do everything via streaming so they have no use for SageTV. A possible exception is people who are into sports.

What the world needs now is a consolidater of streaming services.

Yes. Itís the whole Billie Eilish-has-never-heard-of-Van Helen-thing.
But even if some bright, plugin developer wrote streaming consolidation into Sage Open Source, wouldnít the streaming companies just keep changing their methods?
