Can I save a large thread on here for offline reading?

Evening all,

There's a large 16 page+ thread on here that I'd like to read offline.

Is there an easy, server friendly way of me doing this, assuming it is allowed by forum rules?

regards,

Greg

I normally print to PDF, which compresses the text down, retains graphics without creating hundreds of little .GIF files everywhere, etc, and is easily transportable.

An example of free PDF software is CutePDF.

Why not just use the 'show printable version' option under 'thread tools' at the top of each thread?

Is showing the printable version and then file/save as really that hard?
