So, finding Andrew's Formspring answers is a pain, since his Formsprings (andrewhussie and mspadventures) don't exist any more. So I copied and pasted all of it into one big file that you can search with whatever word processor/text editor/whatever you want. Very simple, and it makes it a lot easier to find the Word of Hussie on whatever subject you're looking for.
Here it is:
Word 2007 (.docx)
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
Plain Text (.txt) (This one doesn't have the links to the questions)
Web Page (.htm)
If you want it in a different format, I'd be happy to add it, so long as I'm able to.
- First, I got the archive of Andrew's old Formspring from this forum post, which I found in the first place from this post. That doesn't have the last few days, so I also included stuff from here (which I found here) and here. So credit where it's due.
- For each different source, I added the time of access (i.e., the approximate time of the most recent question from that source), since Formspring only tells you how long ago an answer was posted, not the actual dates. (Seriously, why does it do this? Arrrgh whatever.) I also added a reference link to the source.
- I added dates to the most recent questions from the Formspring RSS feed. Unfortunately, it doesn't have dates for very many questions.
- I removed some of the stuff on the bottom of each question (Share, Smile, people who I guess smiled?) to try to shorten it a little and because they don't seem very important. This is only for the new Formspring anyway, so you can just click the link and look at that stuff on the Formspring website. OK, the new Formspring is down so you can't do that anymore. I do still have the original page that I downloaded though, so I guess I might as well make that available if you want to know, for example, exactly how many people smiled at a specific question. Here you are. It seems kind of messed up, though, but it's at least still readable.
- One question and answer are in Morse code. I added a translated version right above it.
- I added bookmarks to each question, and changed the link for each question to go to the bookmark for that question instead of the non-existent formspring.
- I added the title "MSPA Formspring Archives" and a link to this thread.
- I added dates. Some were available here: http://webcomictweets.com/page/forms...whussie/page/1. For the rest, I figured it out as best I could.
Dates (or ranges of dates, when I don't know the exact date) apply to all the questions below them until the next date/range of dates.
Most of the ranges of dates are determined as follows: when Formspring says "x months ago", it means "between x-1 and x months ago". So I know the date of everything to within at least a month, and I could often narrow the range down a bit based on the actual questions/answers. I generally didn't narrow the ranges beyond what I was sure about, though, so a lot of them are probably larger than they need to be.
Obviously, there's a decent chance I messed up or missed something, so please tell me if you find anything!
- I removed some redundant copies of questions at the end.
- kwinse has helpfully cleaned up the HTML source for this, so I've updated it to use the cleaned-up version.
