Quad CIty Backstage ending

If any of you haven't seen Colonel Davenport's post that he's closing up shop over at QCBS, I figured I'd repeat it here. He had a grand vision for multiple bloggers with multiple specialties and interests, all putting together sort of a QC digest, covering many issues in addition to politics.

But, it didn't work out. Its a shame, but maybe the QC isn't ready for that sort of thing yet. I want to wish the Colonel, Liberal Lion, and Pioneer all good luck in the future blogging endeavors, and I'm going to miss the Colonel's Davenport insider information.

Thanks for what you've done guys.

Hey QCI - can you zip up QCBS like you did Fly's blog?

Or let us know how to do it ourselves?

Well, the best solution would be for the Colonel to just leave it up. My zipped up DDP doesn't include any of the comments, whereas leaving the blog active would preserve them also.

If you want to save a webpage in IE, go to File, and then "Save as..." for each of the 7 archived month pages.

In FireFox (which you should all be using anyway) just right click and select "Save Page As..."
