Help Needed!

In an attempt to cut my mySQL db down from nearly a gig (thank you, spammers) to a more manageable size, I've accidentally deleted a bunch of old links from my db. For some reason, MT didn't export all my link blog entries before I messed with the database (BAD Movable Type), but I didn't check the link blog export file before deleting those entries from the db (bad Kareem!)

So, I need someone to crawl the set of individual archive files I have on my HD, and assemble one giant text file comprising all the link blog entries on the site. Should be relatively easy to do, but I don't have the time to figure it out right now.

I'm happy to pay / give you a shout out. Anybody out there able to help a brother out (blog at reemer dot com)?

Oh, and once I'm done here, I've had enough of MT and am switching to Wordpress. It's been five lovely years, MT... but welcome to dumpsville. Population: you.
