Ok, in response to some comments about my mirror not looking exactly the
same as the original, I've done a bit of research and switched to w3mir
instead of wget.  I've also, thanks to having root access on my own Linux
box, moved it to a better place, which just so happens to let the original
index.html files work!  The new url is
http://jaybird.no-ip.info/dectalk
I'm still downloading some of the files, but when complete it should look
exactly like the original site, even to a fault in that it will still say
andrelouis.com in certain places.  However, every time I update it will grab
new index.html files from the main site so any changes I made there would
just get tossed out the window at the next update, at least the next update
when there was new stuff to be downloaded.
Jayson.
