Some CMS's have options or plug-ins to generate static html and present that, instead of re-building each page from the database each time it's requested. Usually for performance reasons. Doesn't yours?

Front end performance hasn't been the biggest issue for me in this case.
The back end slows when there are page lists to load, modules/plugins to manage, etc.
One option I have is to convert this CMS to another - that may have less memory requirements -  but converting lots of pages, even few pages, from one to another is often not simple and may not be worth it unless the destination CMS is sure to be superior.

@Renegade: Thanks. Teleport Pro seems a good option to create a local copy, that's what it does if I am right?
The bulk of the work is to re-create web pages based on a template. I need a template-based setup for future pages and edits. I am hoping to convert the content portion of the existing database to something (csv or sql) that can be fed to a template based local program.

I am looking for a way to move a site to a "local" set up - for reasons that I will go into if anybody is interested. This is no easy task because it is a medium sized existing site running on a CMS, one whose pages would need to be recreated.
I am looking at Webmerge (some may have heard of it?) where I create a template and feed it a csv or some other form of database export. Googling for "Static HTML generator" comes up with others (Webgen, some ruby scripts and others)
I am curious if anybody has experience with this sort of thing?

I can also download the whole site and re-upload the HTML but this won't help for future (layout changes, etc.)

FXI is preparing to launch the Cotton Candy, a tiny computer that looks like a USB thumb drive. The device, which can run either Ubuntu or Android 4.0, has a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a Mali 400MP GPU that allows it to decode high-definition video.

It has a USB plug on one side, which is used to power the system, and an HDMI plug on the other side, which allows it to be plugged into a display. It also has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth radios for connectivity and supporting input devices. The system can boot standalone and operate as a complete computer when plugged into a display. It's also possible to plug the Cotton Candy into a conventional computer and boot from it like you would from a regular USB mass storage device.

FXI announced today that the Cotton Candy is available for preorder. The standard retail price is $199 plus tax and shipping. The product is expected to ship in March. The small form factor and relatively high specs make the product seem like a compelling choice for enthusiasts who are looking for an ultra-compact Linux system.

Thank you iphigenie, great stuff

I know what you mean by specific but FWIW Dropbox's folder location can be changed these days.  I think I am more or less a case #1. The files that I am comfortable putting online are moved to a location (dropbox for example) "manually", I don't use online options as a general purpose backup (everything on my drive)

My views on issues like this are obvious and I can repeat the lines again and again.

There is so much wrong in making deficits and national debts the number 1 obsession. It creates so much present hardship that is in no way compensated for future generations. Perhaps the greatest myth of the 20 and 21st centuries are convincing people that the debt on your credit card is the same as the national debt.

What governments should do and be is for the people now and in the future. Help people work and they will contribute to society now and later.

The biggest mistake is making Linux what it's not. Linux's 'not for newbie' tag is often justified but it is a mistake to solve it by making it look like others. May be I am in a minority because I am not even a fan of Windows shell replacements that make it look like another OS for example.

I think UI is there as a tool for people who are not comfortable with other options therefore you have to give them the tools. Windows has three buttons on the top right hand, right? I will choose the download that makes it 5 over the one that makes it 1 every time.

The Florida story is a good example of how 'ordinary' people are the tools of the system and a part of the problem. The problem is people, in America in this case, love to pretend to love democracy but don't come close to practicing it. Even if all other options are questionable you can't spend dozens of election cycles switching back and forth between only 2 and then hope everything will be ok.

If you have shared emmanuelcaradec.com all instances of it become "shared". Google's method doesn't distinguish site folder, subdirectories, etc. Not at this point any way.

The moment this went live all my site's older reviews became shared too eventhough they were written way before Google+ existed.

As I have before, I will post this same line periodically until mouser bans me:

Still it's us, yes us, who are voting for these people and refusing 'alternatives' and 'third parties' with a convenient excuse that either 'they will become the same' or the perhaps worse 'other options will never be viable'.
