well a friend for school for some reference / stats ...

was trying to grab some or all of 


but could not so he asked me to help

I tried could not

now it became more of a personal curiosity and challenge to do it ... to see
why ... how ... please help decipher

life is long ... can learn for the future ...


#1 I needed to change my agent to be something like 

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like
Gecko) Chrome/53.0.2785.143 Safari/537.36

(else was getting <> )

then I was getting



1. You're a power user moving through this website with super-human speed.

2. You've disabled JavaScript in your web browser.

needed to change the 

WinHTTrack projects
Set options > Limits > Max connections / seconds to 0.01

one new connection about every 2 minutes


Flow Control > Number of connections TO 1 (and remove check box for Persistent
connections (Keep-Alive)

BUT I am still not able to rip

in about 2 minutes it throws me to 

WinHTTrack stops and says it noticed that the mirror is EMPTY

with log showing 

... 20:04:39 Error:  "File Cache Entry Not Found" (-1) at link
» ··· 15000141 (from »
··· iy-items)
HTTrack Website Copier/3.48-22 mirror complete in 2 minutes 58 seconds : 3
links scanned, 2 files written (37608 bytes overall), 2 files updated [12841
bytes received at 72 bytes/sec], 37608 bytes transferred using HTTP
compression in 2 files, ratio 30%
(1 errors, 0 warnings, 0 messages)


I notice that if I go to <>
in say Chrome
and right click on any link and select

Save Link As

it saves the HTML as I want it

how can we do it with WinHTTrack? what settings need to be changed?
ONE LEVEL DEEP would be good enough
even maybe giving it a list of exact links to download - how?
OR as an alternative

hmm what other website ripper can I use successfully?
or what Chrome site ripper could be used?
thank you so much looking forward to an interesting discussion ... thank you
