  1. Here is a great open source utility to download websites to a local pc/external drive/nas device..


    ” HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

    It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site’s relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

    WinHTTrack is the Windows (from Windows 2000 to Windows 10 and above) release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release. See the download page. “

  2. SD, I admire your skills set, but in my pea brain, your talking a odd and unusual language.
    So what is gained by this mirroring stuff? Does it keep others from tracking? I’ve intentionally remained very low tech.

    Would a VPN and Onion achieve this, or completely different applications.

    Sorry, not a techie.


    1. Dirt et al;

      This app is strictly downloading/copying/mirroring a current website, and have the ability to navigate the site contents even if the primary site goes dark, like what happened to the WRSA site a couple weeks ago.

      If you are looking to obscure your web browsing, and depending upon your level of concern, you would NOT use your home/office network unless you used a vpn (virtual private network) that don’t log activity


      then you use a tor type of browser that bounces thru various routers/nodes to mask source of IP address….

      The best way imo, is to obtain a basic laptop for cash, buy several usb wifi adapters, this helps to eliminate the mac address of the device on laptop from being traced, run linux on it, and then run a virtual machine on that, and use the VM to browse, all from your neighbors network or whatever open wifi network you can access….When done, close vm and no trace left…

      I have no doubt that one of the multitude of other techie folks here, will chime in with their approach, please do…

      here’s a link that does a decent job of guiding you: https://www.lifewire.com/anonymous-web-basic-3482839
