    Is there any way to download an entire thread to read later? Not all, but definitely some threads have lots of good information. It would be great if we could save the entire thread to disk. Maybe there's already a way that I don't know about ? ...

    You can save pages as Web Archives in Safari...not ideal, but it'll do what you want (I think).

    just curious...how much space would all the threads in this forum be?

    would be cool to have them on a hdd as a wikipedia of some sort when offline lol

    That will work fine for a thread that's just a page or two. What prompted the message was the 22-page Leopard Tips and Hints thread. I did save off about 10 pages of web archives, but stopped because of tedium.
