None that I know of.. maybe do a search in google or something.
But I haven't heard of any as there is a heap of info in a forum database (not just the posts) and that would make for one HUGE text file.
Short from using a blog system like phpweblog.

Good move going with phpbb.. I love that baby.
Man that site.. talk about stealing someone elses design.
They are not part of phpbb but they have a theme exactly the same.
Ohh naughty.. maybe phpbb gave permission.
