don't trust data to be always available.

scrape it. now.

@tehn how/where is the forum data for lines stored?

@paul lines is on a DO server. but i will reserve my personal thoughts on preserving forum data to a future email your way.

@tehn This is why I support I know it's less reliable than holding it at home, but I think it's a good compromise.

@tehn You have no idea how much scraping I've been doing in the past 6 months. And I totally agree. More people need to understand this. The cloud is not your friend.

@tehn And storage is cheap. Buy at least twice as much as you think you need. And make sure you keep it secure.



There are still people who need to be reminded of the OP-post

@tehn Stuff was deleted so fast during the Capitol rush that I hope we were lucky enough to get the good bits.

@tehn 和我存小妹子的照片心态完全一样

@tehn this is really good advice and I'm going to act on it now.
