Forum Archive?

Would administrators care to upload a copy of all the threads(are they stored in a useable form?) of this board to the forum FTP or would I have to create the archive myself using a website copier? This could be repeated after some time to ensure the survival of the information this board has generated. Just an idea, if it involves too much work, I'll sort it out.

I make semi-regular backups of this board, but it's in the form of a MySQL database dump, not viewable pages, and it contains private information like U2U message contents and password hashes, so I can't readily share it. If you visit you will see that they are periodically archiving this site. You can do the same with a copying program like wget. Having a complete archive of the board on the FTP site, periodically updated, would be nice.
