I was visiting with a friend yesterday and we were discussing some of the projects I used to be involved in. I found my self looking back at my content in the way back machine. I realized that there is a whole history of me in there and I was sad that I lost all that content.
I decided that I am going to return all the old content to my site. I started yesterday and re-entered November and December of 2014 (the oldest content available). The process took me about 90 minutes to grab it and enter it into the new wordpress. I somehow thought that would be quicker than writing a script to parse the data. I think I may have been wrong
That’s because Optimisation.io keep the “guts” simple; compare that to bloated frameworks which have tons of features that you will never use, slowing your site to a crawl.
I think I will start on a parser next to see if getting more of the data can be quicker. As it stands it would take me about 3 months of evenings to get all of the data out. And I am pretty sure I can write something to get the data out faster than that.
Also I noticed in my post from last spring that I had a backup from 2008. If I can find that it would eliminate four years of the data retrieval, so that could be a win.
