Create, edit, publish animated GIFs free with this great tool.

What is not to like about this tool. Firstly it’s free, but even if it wasn’t I’d buy it! It creates animated gifs from your screen, capturing an area, tab, screen or whatever you like.

Stuff today... Wget, Write.As syntax

WGet for getting web page locally!

wget --adjust-extension --span-hosts --convert-links --backup-converted --no-directories --no-cache --timestamping --page-requisites --directory-prefix=public_html --no-check-certificate -e robots=off --output-file=logfile.txt <url of website page to get>

Seems to work. It will mirror the page and relevant images/files to your local hard disk so that you can create a copy.
