Okay, so I've managed to fix the archival script. I swear, it's like someone else writes the code while my body goes on autopilot; I only vaguely understand how it works after I've created it, even with copious amounts of comments. At any rate, it appears 4chan changed the way they reference thumbnail files, and blah blah derp derp hocus pocus I fixed it. It should be fine now; PLEASE let me know if it fucks up again.
I'm still thinking about the upload thing. I've been feeling sick lately, though, so I'm afraid I don't know when I'll get to actually work on it. Hopefully I'll feel better soon, but things seem to be steadily progressing downhill for me at the moment.
There was something else suggested earlier by someone, but I can't even remember anything right now, so I hope it'll come back to me at a better hour and/or condition.
p.s. Aun Shi is the derpiest namefag to ever derp
