    At this stage, I'm the only one that could do this task (everyone else is just too busy), but unfortunately the connection speed from New Zealand to is just no up to the task of archiving such a large volume. I'm afraid you'll probably have to handle the task much closer to the California-based server.

    I'm sorry I can't be of more help at this moment in time.

      It's ok, Lance. Considering how slow it can be from Sweden, I
      guess New Zeeland can be even worse. We have some volunteers
      with speedy connections here, so it will be taken care of. In the
      end, this project will actually easy up on the traffic here, because
      we will be able to find many answers directly in our local computers,
      instead of having to go here and search for them all the time.

      I'm a bit busy right now, so I'll have to get back to this later
      on tonight. In the meantime, who can help?

      The HTML files need to be downloaded, zipped and made available
      for download somewhere, after which you can contact me at
      [email protected] so I can download and convert them. Since the
      database sizes will become very big, I will need to approach them
      differently, with some compressing routine - probably based on
      existing words vs their location, to avoid a final database size
      of 30-40 MB. I have some ideas, just need some time to implement them.

      The archives are a bit special, because Semen's code won't work
      there. The files are named differently, so one would need to DIR$
      through them to get all HTML files, regardless of their names.
      Not my area of expertise, but if someone knows how to download
      all HTML files from a directory, regardless of their name, it would
      help a lot. Must go now, but I'll be back later..
