Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Flipping through text files of XML to try to read what was going on at a dead site makes it difficult to get the jist of it. Is there some tool that will order the posts into Q and A's and sprinkle in the comments?

it would be nice to be able to see at least the top Qs of a dead site. – Ben Brocka Nov 13 '11 at 1:07
Hmm, I may consider writing one. – Manishearth May 20 '12 at 18:43

A simple excel Pivot table, cross linking the Parent IDs of Post Types 2(Answers) with the post IDs of the Questions, gives a nice view with Question and nested answer Texts.

I already have workable copies of a few, that I may share if solicited.
