Thinking about grabbing archives of some of my older internet postings from forums that are still around. Yeah, there's a lot of random stuff & a lot of fragments, but there are probably a few things I'd like to keep.
Not surprised that the smaller forums don't have an export or archive feature, but I am surprised that neither Slashdot nor Reddit does. Thought it might be worth saving a copy to search/skim through later, but it's not just worth the time to page through it online.
for Reddit, this might help:
where the 'after' key you can find in each downloaded json file.
@FiXato Hmm, something I could save and parse, rather than just page through a zillion times. Thanks!
