web2disk

Released libprs500 v0.3.69 with the program web2disk. It allows you to download websites to your harddisk in a format that's suitable to run through html2lrf to generate a nice LRF file for your SONY Reader.

Code:
web2disk http://www.google.com
It fetches links recursively, by default to one level, so you can potentially download an entire website.

Enjoy and report bugs. This is a few hours work, so there are bound to be many.

Hey! I'm gonna download the Internet!

But seriously, can you set a delay of one request per second? That is the cutoff for Wikipedia. Any faster and they will block the URL.

AdBlock (and AdBlock Plus, its successor), two Firefox extensions can use a list of regex to block ads from webpages.
I put here a link to a good list (http://adblock.free.fr/adblock.txt), which can be useful to people wanting to retrieve lare bunch of sites, without following ads and stats links.

When you say a good list you mean a list of websites that should not be blocked? Also why are there so many / in the regexps?

I mean a list of site that *should* be blocked, since all those regexps are matching sites known for their ad campaigns or stats placement code.
My post wasn't very clear...

By the way, the list wasn't done by me, but I use it everyday. And I have forgottent since a long time what's like to surf on pages with advertisements with this tool !

There'll be a --delay option in the next release.
