its odd rthat it wouldn't let you download stuff from a website through the wayback machine, it wouldn't be the robots.txt that sort of thing blocks all access, but I guess one has to do it the old fashioned way of going through and downloading every page and image...

This site can be loaded correctly with Offline Explorer. The only suggestion to make the download correct is to use the Project Properties dialog - URL Filters - Directory section and add the server name to the Included keywords list, like: www.server.com This will limit the download to the site you want and not follow outside links. All scripts and special codes on the site will be correctly downloaded and processed.
