ARIADOS Project

ARIADOS was a web scraper script I created to back up the TRsRockin Forum after the host it was on got bought out by an absolutely garbage forum system called Yuku.

And by "web scraper" I really mean more of a brute-force page downloader. The goal of the project was to grab all the data as quickly as possible and sort it out at a later date.

Yuku was later bought out by Tapatalk, reconverting the forum to phpBB and relieving most the worry of the hosting service disappearing.

SMEARGLE was a secondary script written to back up all of the images Dan used in his Let's Play threads. It saved images to a filename that was a hash of their url as an anti-duplicate measure.
