This due to the recent losses that stimulate me to act. Of course they cannot beat a forum dump, but better than nothing.

I just spent the last 13 days downloading the archives of the old forum (at a similarly slow rate so as not to put undue load on the server). It looks like there were around 175,000 posts retrieved; because the sequence numbers go to around 258,000 I'm not sure if I missed some or if there are just that many gaps in the sequence.

I still have a lot of work to do on it (I will eventually write some code to refactor the site in an automated manner to make it more usable), but I believe I have all threads and all Museum-hosted images from those threads. I will probably make a second pass later to attempt to get remotely hosted images as well, before any more image hosting sites shut down.
