I'll sort you out with a copy. you might need to remind me - you can contact me on buzz [at] - I need to just remove one thing from the script which is the private reference/access to the site to pull out their data. you can contact them and ask for access if needed.

This reminds me of something you can clarify for me BuZz, a few months ago I downloaded a chunk of the filesystem on Unexotica to get an idea of how to organise your collection, and I spotted .txt files such as "composer.txt" and "archivename.txt".. How are they generated? Do I need to parse them, or will our SQL interface bypass anything useful in these files?
they are manually generated by contributors, but then the data is gathered up by a perl "bot" which then edits the various related wiki pages.

however I may well make a sql database for this stuff too to have a similar search frontend as for modland.
