Folks-

I have an old vB 3.X forum with about 10K posts, and I would like to capture that content into a text file (tab-delimited or csv would be best). There aren't any images or attachments to worry about, just text. I have access to ACP, sever, database—whatever I need to get to.

What is the easiest, idiot-friendly way to do this?

Why use a special program? phpMyAdmin is capable of dumping a table into a CSV file.
