Ahh yes, only the articles on the main page are currently available. Otherwise, the download becomes too big. I will think of it again. Either I will try to include it (without images perhaps), or I will at least remove the more from links to avoid confusion.

Sure can do that for you :P Though the primary purpose of this here is to have scoops of non-mobile pages available that aren't easily converted with iSiloX.

Great move Alex - really nice scoops. Also, I agree with Tanker Bob that it'd be nice to have FoxNews.
Gyffes - what's your Palm device?
Since everyone's making requests how about The Daily Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/)?

melvynadam, Tanker Bob:

Hi,

Alex,I was also wondering about the access.

I just checked my email and had no message for details.

This sounds like a great idea.Do any of the clips include photos?

Peace,

David

Alex, thanks so much for adding FoxNews. Whilst you're in a giving mood......

Are there any other Israelis on this list who would be interested in Ha'aretz (http://www.haaretzdaily.com/)? It's too difficult for me to get this on iSilo as it's definitely one of those "non-mobile pages available that aren't easily converted with iSiloX". If there's enough interest maybe it could be added.

Hi,

Alex,simply amazing work and I look forward to seeing what you add in the coming days.

I have one small request,would it be possible to consolidate all of the Reuters stuff in one file For those who may just want a single file?

Peace

David

Alex, many thanks - this is great! I can't wait for NYT sections. Is there any chance of making these available via FTP? That would allow users to write a simple script to download the files we want and throw them into the ISilo install directory for "automated" updating of content. It would also be a lot easier to download files while away from a desktop PC . . . or maybe there's a simpler solution to these that I'm missing?
Either way, your work is much appreciated

Interesting idea,
perhaps "wget" (http://studwww.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/) can solve that task (I haven't tried).

To fetch the files while online, there were some discussions in the sitescooper ml.

Has anyone experiences with Palm-browser, that directly can download the pre-scooped files and install them (on card or RAM) for iSilo.

-S.

Just use a download manager with scheduling (e.g. GetRight, Download Boost, ReGet Deluxe, Internet Download Manager, InstantGet, DownloadStudio, HiDownload).
If you're interested in a freeware app that'll do this then try out Fresh Download.

Hope that's of use.
