That or zip files.

An offline website https://solar.lowte...ffline-reading.html

       Yep, the archive is still only a little over 1GB, and as I haven't finished, or even started learning Portuguese, I haven't automated the archive yet.

       I have made an alphabetised print out of all my ideas. It's a substantial 5 volume tome of A4 pages approximately 300 pages per volume. I would love a downloadable off-line app version with as well - Mac based of course.

       There is a solar-powered website I follow occasionally which has made an offline version of itself, by reformatting the content and uploading to a print-on-demand bookseller. (link provided). It would not take much extra code to automate such a process for the halfbakery. Presumably it would work best if organised by posting date. The script could download all ideas, sort by chronological order, strip out web formatting / convert to print format, group by number of pages, insert cover and imprint pages, and upload to the print-on-demand service. Us hapless victims could then simply browse to the print-on-demand shopfront page and order as many of the volumes as our budget permitted.

       Looks like a bit over 1Gb of text would be pushing 1,000,000 pages. If we have 500 page volumes then the HB print-on-demand storefront will have about 2,000 volumes for sale. If each volume sells for £20 then we should each budget £40k for the complete set which should fit onto full height bookcases in a single room in a normal dwelling-house.   

       There would also need to be an index, I am not an indexer so I am not sure how best to generate this. I imagine a 20-volume index would be quite useful.

       //Does that include all of your Tumblr illustrations?// - I have multiple notebooks filled with illustrations and other work. Instagram is my new repository for yet other work I do. I also use ccproof.nl to register ideas that I don't post on FB as they may be more commercially viable. I try to keep these various worlds operating separately from each other.
