    Crazy...i know, but there are so many seiz and desist letter coming out.

    So if we fellow blackhatters would want to save each post till the last second how can we do that?

    Is there a software that can download an entire forum each day?

    Google does this automatically within it's cache. Otherwise you'd need to find or code something to crawl the forum, which would probably get you IP banned from the forum if they found out. You'd be wasting their bandwidth.

    Maybe there is a way of automatically saving blackhatworld's rss feed and saves itself in a pdf.

    Each time you run the rss feed it overwrites the pdf..maybe?

    Better option: As you run across threads that you find really helpful, just save those. Doing each and every post would be ridiculous.

    if you really wanted to archive bhw feeds. I suppose you could run a local wamp server and rss agregator script and put it to a mysql databases

    I used to help run a very large forum, and we wanted a mirror of the site too (in case we ever went down). Obviously if we had everyone spidering the site it would grind to a halt, so we had another staff member rip the site early in the morning on a weekly basis, then we had that in a .rar file and distributed it on BitTorrent/Mediafire for the masses to download. Efficiency-wise, that would probably be the best thing we can do here. And the mirror for a forum of this size probably wouldn't exceed 250-300MB (if that). Compressed, it would be way smaller.

    Added a screenshot of a software called: Save Multiple RSS Feeds Into Text Files. So everytime it fetches rss updates it saves it into a text file. So you just let it run each day and never lose the hot topics on this wonderfull forum.

    Anyone has a similar software?

    BHW won't be going down, if BHW was to go down, they'd be given at least a database back up, then they'd simply change to another hosting provider, seeing as BHW has been around for a while now, I can't see any reason why it would be shut down, most of the illegal content isn't allowed on here, it's just a forum on making money online. :p

    First off, bhw's not gonna really go any where....bhw doesn't promote hacking and explicitly illegal activites.
    Secondly, copying posts won't do anything for you....how many ebooks do you have on you hd atm....and do you really read them?

    If you see info you like, copy it, make notes,and learn it.

    It seriously doesn't make sense for you to copy posts to your hd....
