The Topic: zipped archives

The Asker
Hey, you should zip each month of the archives and make it available for download for those of us who are chumps and have Internet access that sucks so much that we can't get through the archives without our connection dying.

Well, see, it's not quite that easy. Right now all the wacky character images and such we use are, at least in theory, covered by fair use laws. But if we were to set up a system by which they'd be easily downloadable and kept on someone's hard drive, well, we'd leave ourselves open to all kinds of tricky legal issues.

Wow! Is that really true?

No, the fact is we're just lazy asses.
