Harvester software is expressly prohibited

On more than one occassion, the site was down for a couple of days because I exceeded my bandwidth limitation (20Gb!!!). Why? Because people are still trying to download the entire site at once using mirroring tools (i.e. wget, httrack, etc.). When I moved to PHPNuke, I could limit this a bit. Still, there are people who clever enough to get around this.

However, it is still a violation of the copyright and the site terms of use. You are expressly prohibited from downloading the entire site like that. Therefore, doing so is illegal. Also when I run out of bandwidth, the site is no longer accesible for anyone.

Plus, it makes no sense. The site is so constructed that almost every page is created dynamically. You end up downloading 10s of megabytes needlessly. Go to the SourceForge project page and download all of the content of the site in a single file. You can also download a PFD file from SourceForge.

Finally, this site costs me real money out of my pocket. I get no money (read: $0.00) from any of the sponsors. All goes to the Jessie Arbogast Medical Fund. If I need to increase bandwidth for people using the site, I will, but it is unfair to force me to pay for extra bandwidth because someone ignores the rules and downloads the whole site. I am not some big corporation. I am a private person who is doing this on my own to help others. So, please help me by not downloading the whole site at once.
