Before I get started, my sincerest apologies on how long this has taken.  We are well into Summer here in the USA and I was hoping to have this all done long ago.  My thank you to everyone - Especially Mark - for your patience.

Per Mark's instructions, he wanted to keep this simple.  Static pages of mostly text so people can find what they are looking for quickly.  Well, I think we are ready for some serious feedback on how this is going to happen.  Here are some screen shots:

Main page:
Notice how we list out the categories of the once and former Snitz forum.  Just click on the link to go to those topics in that category.

Subsequent Pages: 
Notice how each topic has become a subject header with all the accompanying replies.  You have the topic author and date and each reply has the author and date.  There are links to either go back or go to the new site listed about.

Notice I'm using colors to denote when a topic begins/ends and when replies begin/end.  The blue, I think, gives it away nicely. 

This website has been published to my test web address and right now Mark has the link.  Keep in mind that the purpose of this site isn't to get fancy, but to serve as a historical reference and allow us to pick up where we left off. 

I look forward to your feedback, but note that final judgement is Mark's. 

Since I have this in a SQL Server Integration Services package, making changes and running the process to pull the data from the Snitz database and into HTML files is easy.  I can spit out all the contents from the Snitz database and into HTML files in 6.3 minutes.

Well done James
We all know these things grow wings and become much bigger projects than ever expected.

Looks cool

We'll have to call him the SQL Witch in reference to his GoT love (or something similar)

Paladin would be more appropriate.
