Flipping through text files of XML to try to read what was going on at a dead site makes it difficult to get the gist 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.

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.
