    to download new material from wikileaks onto your own computer and then send it around to friends.  Once the information is "out there" its next to impossible to get it back.

      if you have a lot of disk space, pick up HTTrackand clone the site onto your hard drive.

      Set the path for storing the files to something short and right off your C: or D: drive.

      Limit your number of connections to one, the transfer rate fairly slow, same for connections per second.  This help keep from hammering the site being mirrored. Use the default relative links' (it is default, if you don't understand what this is or where the control is, you're OK - just leave it alone.)

      When it's done, you've a copy of the site on your hard drive.  It can be copied to a CD/DVD and mailed or handed to someone else, who can put it in another computer and browse the archived site.  It can also bu put online (outside the US)

      The Russians had to use typewriters or pens.  To Woz and all the other first hackers who took computers away from Big Brother and gave them to us, thank you.

        think they've squashed something (like Napster), only to have that very action spawn more powerful systems like the hubless gnuetella peer to peer networks.

        I love how, in this case, these guys thought ahead and had redundant sites set up.

        I can't wait til the powerbrokers get broken by the accountability systems of the web, and smart users of the web.
