wgetting a Website

I spent ten minutes today pondering the best way to turn a WordPress-powered weblog I haven’t updated since 2008 into a static site—should I use WP locally to generate flat files, perhaps, or convert to Jekyll?

I am an idiot.

This is what I ended up doing:

wget -m -p -P ~/website example.com
[some time later...]
rsync -avz --delete ~/website/ me@example.com:path/to/website
