Hi. Love the new board interface!!! Good work guys and gals.

I'm looking for a program that will download selected message board topics to be able to read later. Hoping someone can help.

I'm a 2yr member of a big fan-site message board with lots of different sections and topics that I've never even read. By the time I've caught up on new posts and finished replying... I'm pooped! So I skip the massive 'Archives' section that I'm always referred to when I have a question about something in history. I'm going on vacation without internet service and thought it'd be a good time to catch up. I'd like to find a program (or directions) to be able to download some of the topics.

I've tried using Acrobat Pro 7. It will work but not automatically. I have to log in and navigate from within Acrobat then manually click on each page to be downloaded and saved. Some of these topics have 200+ pages of replies and it takes FOREVER! And some of the pages with pics get cut in half. grrrrrr.

In case I haven't explained well:
If I wanted to download to my hd all twelve pages of text and pics from - THIS TOPIC - to be read offline later, how would I do it?

Many thanks, Lisa
