November 18, 2008 – Handy Blogging Archive Software

One of the unintended benefits of the this blog is as a “scrapbook” of sorts for our kids. I think it will be a hoot for the kids to look at in years to come. The only problem is that the software I use to create it requires server software and all the info is stored in a database – so doing a backup of the site is all fine and good, but will not be something you can put on a cd or flash drive and view – it requires the web host server to work.

I found some free software called HTTrack which captures an HTML mirror (copy) of a web site you indicate. So, now I have an offline copy of the blog that only needs a web browser to view and that is portable and can be viewed on any computer.
