Warrior

You can help by installing and running the Archiveteam Warrior and selecting the "posterous" project. Warning: Posterous will most likely ban you after a couple of hours, which means you won't be able to visit Posterous unless you can change your IP address.

Seesaw script (for advanced users)

Download:

git clone https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/posterous-grab.git

Follow instructions to install seesaw and edit script for IP address.

For wget: run ./get-wget-lua.sh

Running too many concurrently will get you banned at :50 past the hour.

Commands:

Make sure you place an IP address after --bind-address= on line 175. Example: "--bind-address=192.168.1.1",

git clone http://github.com/ArchiveTeam/posterous-grab.git
cd posterous-grab
git clone http://github.com/ArchiveTeam/seesaw-kit
cd seesaw-kit
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
sudo pip install seesaw
cd ../
chmod +x get-wget-lua.sh && ./get-wget-lua.sh
run-pipeline --concurrent 1 --address <your_ip_address> pipeline.py <your_username>
