How would one go about doing that? I have some time to kill.

  • Command line (aka your most powerful option): wget. Can spoof browsers, borrow authentication, share cookies, and mirror entire websites
  • Built in: Firefox has a "save page as html, complete" function that saves a page and all prereqs locally, but doesn't save anything dynamically loaded.
  • Standalone program: Httrack. Open source, cross platform, can mirror entire sites

This process is fast and webpages are small. Archive everything even mildly interesting as you would be surprised what you figured was 'tame enough' but disappears anyway.

I know you can save webpages to your harddrive, I used to save as .mht about 15 years back, so the page was self contained. (If I saved as other format, it would save page and accompanying files separately, and I could not open it locally)

Another, more rudimentary way is to create screenshots of pages, as you scroll or whatever, so you get the complete page. Then save locally and upload to free speech image host like imgoat.

I don't know the current methods for saving pages, nor the preferred format. I assume its not mht any more.
