12/16   When I downloading a directory with wget, it some generates multiple
        and identical copy of index.html with names like index.html?C=N;O=D,
        one for each real files in the directory.  Which option should I
        give wget to stop this stupidity?  I read the man page already.  tnx.
        \_ if there's a certain type of file at that site you want,
           use "-A"
           wget -r -l 1 --no-parent -Amp3 http://www - danh
           \_ But that still download the duplicate files but only remove
              it later, right?  Actually it fetches a duplicate of this
              dynamically generated index.html for every real file in the
              directory so it can be a real waste of bandwidth/time.

              do I tell wget that they are the duplicates?

5/5     Is there a good (or standard) way to make an offline copy of a w
        ordpress blog (mine, not someone else's)? tia.
        \_ oh man.
           \_ I could cobble something together with curl / wget, but I'd
              rather not if there is a standard way of doing this.  I'm
              pretty new to wordpress / blogging and I just want to keep

4/22    ok, here's a little networking puzzler. I haven't been able to access
        youtube for a couple weeks. Couldn't figure out why. Happened on all
        browsers. traceroute did weird stuff and then timed out. Finally I
        got so frustrated I setup firefox to ssh tunnel through soda.csua,
        which worked great. Then, I kill the ssh proc, quit FF, and now,
        I can access youtube just fine from any browser. wtf? any

3/31    There's this website that I'd like to perform an asshole
        wget operation on it (wget -r --level=3 -k
        However, it's got rate throttling and denies me if I fetch
        too quickly. Is there like a "--wait 10" command or something
        I can use with wget? ok thx.
        \_ man wget, look for "--random-wait".

8/7     I'm trying to figure out whether it's possible for get wget to
        authenticate to a web page protected by a login form ('post'
        method to send username/pass, and cookies.)  Cookies don't seem
        to be the problem, with --save-cookies and --keep-session-cookies
        but getting the username/password submitted isn't doing it.  On
        this particular page, getting to a link, let's say 'example.aspx',

1/17    So, the outstanding 'issues' with new Soda are:
        * X11 forwarding
        * SMTP AUTH
        are these problems being worked on?
        \_ smtp auth is being worked on, whats the issue with x11?
        \_ i just noticed that wget doesn't work.

10/23   Guys, I would like to fetch the 'opensolaris' logo from the website
        What tools can I use to do that?  I am on WiFi.  And I want to fetch
        the logo just because they are making it hard to do so.
        \_ Uh, Firefox?  Any other web browser?  wget?  Why does it matter
           that you're using WiFi?

9/7     When I used wget -k -r to get stuff recursively, it doesn't translate
        URLS like "" I think it is
        confused by the ? and other stuff. Also I need to convert them to
        HTML. Do you know how to make wget translate properly? ok thx.

        Does anyone knows how to download these trailers to my home computer?
        \_ 1) mozilla/firefox with mplayer plugin
           2) get the html for the page, read the EMBED directives
           \_ Also, if the URL for the large trailer is:, the

2/2     What is the exact user-agent string I shouold give lynx, wget, curl and
        the like to make them indistinguishable from say, MSIE browser running
        on a wintel?  Googling led me to to things as simple as MSIE or
        something with parenthesized list and I am confused.  Thanks.

1/5     So who else thinks that Linux Kernel Development has gone haywire?
        WTF is up with this movement from an 8k to a 4k stack in the kernel
        that breaks tons of existing drivers that are ported over from
        Windows? And wtf is this crap doing on production distros like
        Fedora? Don't they realize that if you're going to have a large
        install base that you can't arbitrarily do crap like that anymore?
