    Dennis,

    Yes it was an automation script - done in VBScript that parsed the text files into php files. converting the special characters, inserting linebreaks , formatting titles etc..

    it ran very fast. Conversion of the 14000 files took just a couple of minutes once the final script was done .. only the uploading was slow, taking atleast a couple of hours..

    Indexes added for the DCBoard Archive..

    http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/index1.php (note the links to the 77 pages )

    Around 470 old threads from May to Nov 2007 are not indexed, but the rest 14000 odd threads re linked through these 77 pages

    The archive can also be accessed via the "DC Board Archive" menu link from the front page (next to RAF Commands Forum Menu Link)

    I was told that some of the individual posts that were coming up in Google were not linked to the index page. sure enough, it seems the index pages missed out nearly 13 more pages worth of posts.

    So I have regenerated all the index pages. They now total 90

    Going through the final pages I discovered another minor issue - Henk had made several posts on the older board which covered 1939 and early days of 1940. At some point we may want to move these to Henk's archive in the General Category forum? His 1939 posts start on Index Page 82
