development blog for the wicked stuff we encounter

If you want to get all images (and other fancy stuff like scripts, css) from a website (even if the files referenced in the Html source are hosted on other domains), you can do it with the following wget command:
wget -E -H -k -K -p -U "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)"  http://the.domain/
note: if you don't specify the browser type, the server possibly will think of you as a Crawler, a search engine bot, and will only serve you the robots.txt file.
