    hey now mr. bergamot bleach, i think you're onto something. now for my next question, what's the easiest way to get the subversion copy. i know where to get it from, but is there a way to download the entire thing all together or do i have to just keep saving all those pages one by one in the browser?

    I know there are a bunch of SVN threads on here already; I'll dig one up if nobody's posted directions by morning.

    And I think you're the first person on here to recognize the icon :D

    ill just dig around a bit and post again if i can't pull a solution outta my ass one way or another.

    and hooray for being a total nerd. i just started wolf's rain two night ago. i started watching bleach with my ex lady, but she sucks and i moved on. i'm sure ill get back to watching the rest of the series in a couple of months.
