  • After talking with Someone Who Knows, I'd just like to caution that putting TPJ on the web would cause serious harm to ever seeing it revived again in some other form.

    However, it's possible to mirror a site like this for your own private use. In case things go terribly wrong. Easy? I dunno. I hardly ever do things the easy way. Here's what I did:

    1. Get out a copy of ngrep, tcpdump, or whatever your favorite TCP sniffer program is. Mine is ngrep at the moment. Fire it up, capture http sessions.
    2. Surf to TPJ, log in with your browser. Go to a "secured" page somewhere.
    3. Grunge around in the captured data for the Cookie header. Cut and paste that to somewhere safe.
    4. Fire up wget and use the --header= option and attach the cookie that you squirreled away from the previous step.
    5. Fight with the shell's quoting of the special characters in the cookie.
    6. Use your favorite wget options and start the mirroring.
    7. Get a coke. Munch on a burrito.
    8. Run out of disk space because you started the mirroring in /tmp.
    9. chdir to a larger partition, start the mirroring again.
    10. Finish burrito
    11. Enjoy your local TPJ mirror.
    Don't share it around though. It's YOUR mirror for your own private use. Remember, this is still copyrighted material (to hell with the "information wants to be free" propaganda). TPJ may come back but not if you make things worse.
