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: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread762746/pg1 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): http://minus.com/msISVG6R9/ 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.
