    Offline Web Pages

    Just got back into an idea I had a while ago for offline browsing and wondered if people felt it would be useful...

    Basically the program here http://www.manwhoring.com/mp3car/ukchris/PageGrab.zip when run expects two command line parameters. The first is a URL to a web page, the second a path and filename with the extension MHT. It will then retrieve the web page and save it as a web archive containing the web page and all the graphics. It's easier to try than explain.

    Try running it with the command line:
    "C:\PageGrab\PageGrab.exe" "http://www.mp3car.com" "C:\PageGrab\PageGrab.mht"

    Or:
    "C:\PageGrab\PageGrab.exe" "http://www.smartraveller.com/scripts/bostraffic.asp?index=2&city=bos&cityname=Boston" "C:\PageGrab\BostonTravel.mht"

    The general idea is that when you start up at home or whenever you pass an access point you can pull down the key sites you're interrested in then view them any time, sports scores, weather, traffic reports etc...

    It has no error handling at the moment but give it a whirl and let me know if you think it is any use.

    Chris.

    I'm assuming this 'Automatically Connect to Non-Preferred Networks' will allow me to do this...

    Yes, I believe so, just don't drive through them too fast, give it a chance to connect!

    On my 40 minute drive to work NetStumbler would pick up around 40 wide open wireless networks.
