Building up 1.0 mirror archive on 'Son Of'

The purpose of this is so that if N54 were ever to die we would not lose all the archives, also because with a local mirror (meaning the threads contents from N54 duplicated here on the 'Son Of' database) those threads become searchable here as well, using the much improved 'Son Of' search engine. One consequence of this though is that the 'new/todays posts' section is going to be all screwed up on days that any significant data transfer happens in the mirror section, another is that 'at-signs' are now banned by necessity from any use on this system, because every thread posted in the mirror from N54 has openly accessible email addresses in them, so I am censoring out all occurrences of the at-sign so any lurking spambots will not be able to harvest valid emails from the mirror. As always comments are welcome.

PS note re: post data

Yes every post in the mirror archive shows as being created by me (or by Xweb archive bot). This can be hacked in the future to reflect the original N54 post names/dates on the mirror index. The original post names and dates are still visible inside each thread though, which should work fine for search engine results 'for now'...
