Re: <nettime> fast-changing propaganda website archiving tools?


Thanks for that as well. What was this visual rhetoric project, and is
there something that's out there to see?

Httrack is proving tricky to install, but I'll keep on it. Pages of
error messages during "make" for instance.

That said, Httrack's doesn't promise support for archiving Flash
pages, and all the documentation talks about following links, which
leads me to think it's not going to be any more successful for what
I'm trying to do.

(When I said things like Fink and Wget, I meant just that, I tried
things, like fink and wget! Also downloadhelper and downthem all,
which are firefox plugins for ripping website media... they grab
youtube vids for instance.)
