Subject: Download the forum messages
This forum has a lot of interesting messages, but it is a burden to scroll through each of them in groups of 5. Is there a way to download all forum message in one file?

We are currently exploring alternatives and changes to the Forum to make it easier to use. Two options that we are investigating closely are creating more topic areas so that messages relating to a specific area of interest are grouped together and adding a search capability for finding messages relating to a specific area within a topic.
Thank you for giving us feedback on our site. We hope to implement these ideas soon.

Would it be possible to set up a news server for all the RAC forum messages using the Internet "nntp" type protocol?
This way, people could easily add the RAC news server to their existing newsgroup software (such as Outlook Express, Forte Agent etc) in order to view all the available messages. Message threads would automatically be preserved. Messages would also be available offline. It would also be able to post messages to the forum using this protocol.
I agree that the current implementation of the forum, whilst providing a wealth of information, is somewhat cumbersome. Individuals cannot necessarily afford the time to wade back through hundreds of messages to find what they are looking for.
