I've now uploaded the archive of posts to the Rendlesham-
Incident forum at the links below.

For ease of searching, I have spent quite a bit of time in the
last couple of weeks converting that html archive into PDF
documents. That PDF archive is at:

http://minus.com/m8589XMgO/

Each page of posts is a separate PDF file, so the PDF archive is
largely unstructured (unless you instruct windows to add a
column containing the "title", which then lets you sort by the
title of each thread in Windows) - but I have still been finding
the PDF archive very useful to be able to quickly search the
collection of PDF pages using the free software outlined at the
link below:

Incidentally, the initial conversion of the archive to PDF
documents was over 2GB, but I found that it contained a heck of
a lot of duplication. Eliminating that duplication (which has
involved a _lot_ more time and effort than I had hoped...) has
reduced the size of the zipped collection of PDFs to under 50Mb!

I have also uploaded the original html archive supplied to me by
"Daniel" to the link below (with a file size of about 0.4Gb):

I hope that sharing this archive helps reduce the amount of
reinvention of the wheel that tends to occur within ufology
generally and discussions of the Rendlesham Forest incident in
particular.


All the best,

Isaac
