I use SQLite Studio to open & browse the database files.

Wilson,

I must've missed the memo on ver. 4.0.891. I downloaded it and installed it and I am now able to download files and folders.

Thanks!

Mick

Actually... Yahoo is pseudo threaded.


Each message has an individual message number.  Messages are atomic.

What joins them is the subject line.

That is, in & of itself, no guarantee of continuity as if you make a reply but change the subject line, the link is lost.


Truly threaded  forums (like Facebook) have separate Post and Comment types.

Comments cannot exist without their parent Post.

Mick,

 What version PGO do you have?

 I have a memory of us making a change for TLS1.2 which is a change that was made to the internet generally.

Cheers,

 Wilson.

Hi Richard,

 You can open the .db3 database file directly with SQLite Browser.

 You do not need to export as SQL as what this produces is a dump file which is a text file of SQL commands.

 You cannot open a text file with a utility designed to open databases.

 Just open the .db3 file (which is an SQLIte database) using your SQLite browser.

Cheers,

Wilson.

Hi Wilson,

Sorry for the lag in responding. I've tried multiple times today to download photos and I am not having any luck. Here is the log text from just one photo in the group I am trying to download:

1:37:15 PM Getting content for group taigtools completed

Also, when I navigate to the folder where the file is supposed to be, the folder is empty.

Initially I thought that the trouble was because one of the groups I was trying to download has been deactivated and moved to io.groups. However, the Taig Tools groups is still active on Yahoo and it is not working either.

Well, in this case the original owner's relatively youthful age masked his mortality, and he did have moderators to carry on (of which I was one), but ownership passed to his older brother who was curator of all his other personal effects as well, a benevolent, but ambivalent sorta guy.

But what ultimately led to the demise of the group was a new member that was toxic and untrainable, that I ultimately banned, which generated a loud, long and persistent angst from a small cadre that dominated the traffic. Finally I just gave moderation to "Obstinate Prime" and bowed out. Turned out none of us (including him) recognized OP's mortal limitations either, and he followed the original owner into that long quiet sleep, but not before he let the guy I banned back in and OP at least came to appreciate why I banned the guy in the first place before suddenly and permanently retiring to HIS dirt bed (the guy wasn't hostile to MY authority as OP surmised, he was hostile to anyone's authority - All non-academic knowledge comes in suppository form).
Metaphysical question: If you're given an atomic wedgie at the moment of death, are you stuck with it for eternity? In this case, I hope so.
Alas, our nuvo-superhero of the new millennium - Toxic Man - was still a member and nobody who cared had access to the eject button. Thusly unfettered he blossomed into his full potential, and the writing, as they say, was written on the outhouse wall.

Rather than get into the middle of the circular firing squad the owner eventually just put it out of everybody's misery. The only one who posted vitriolic objection to the termination notice was Toxic Man. I'm still debating with myself whether to keep his last post as the inscription on the head stone when I republish the archive or scrub the group of evidence of his existence entirely from the final record which, given Yahoo's use of embedded reply chains makes decarboxylation of the metastasizing intellectual cancer anything but a trivial task. Thread and user sorting isn't discriminating enough - using those approaches, either a lot of babies would go out with the dirty bathwater, or a lot of bathwater remains stinking up the babies.
It's 96000 messages, remember? The only good thing I suppose is that only about the last half are potentially tainted.  :-\
 
Anyway the archive is supposed to display the accumulated and precious subject knowledge provided by the members, not an ugly case study of how to kill a discussion group. My debate is whether the hassle involved is greater than the pleasure derived. (I'll be severely chastised no matter what way I decide and I'm becoming weary of repeatedly falling on the sword of noble intent.)

So, some groups succumb to the owner's age or the fickle finger of fate sans wisely planned succession, some to mismanagement, some to neglect, and some to poisoning. This was a noxious combination of them all - hard to decide which to put down as the primary cause of death.

It happens a lot.

Yahoo tends to attract umm... mortally challenged individuals (ie old folk) so its small wonder that group founders fall off their perches and don't leave any clear line of succession.

Not assisted in any way by Yahoo.

How hard would it be to have a facility to appoint a successor?  You just list an email address and if you fail to login within a month, he gets control.

Easy, peasy, fully automatic.

Thanks, but I think I'm missing something.  I selected a group that I had downloaded, then used the Export toolbar, selected "export as SQLite dump" and saved it as a .sql file.  That is what I am trying to open with the SQLite Browser.  ???
