Terrence, You can paste it into any text or word processor, including WordPad. However, you will have to make up your own naming convension and you will have to build up you own thread files. You could paste the messages in the same sequence as they appear on the message board in thread sequence, with a separate file for each main thread. You are not going to be able to recreate the message database (with its thread links) that you can run off-line on your PC, without an awful amount of work. Sorry - it would be useful.
