Aarrgghh.. I really need to check what I type on my phone (or what the software corrects it to). I mean included content, like java(script), videos/roms/etc... Wget only seems to dowload things with a href tag.

You can instruct it to download 'page requisites' as well (images, CSS, JS, ...) (seems like your downloader did that as well).

Embedded content like videos is a different story. I do believe it can process video & audio tags nowadays.
It won't (by itself) download stuff like embedded YT videos.

A the ripping website subject. Main reason why I have the downloads behind a timer on the website.
Some people hate the timer and the possible ad showing up, I've choosen for this option, since the website has over 1,5Gb of downloads in it's repository, got sick of these leechers which made the bandwidth usage spike, had a few months 35-40GB of bandwidth was used, so I moved on taking countermeasures, since banning just an IP address is not an solution.

I can understand that completely. Did the same in the past. Tried ways to keep leechers away.
With this version of the site, I decided I didn't want to fight that battle anymore and put up a link with the complete site as a downloadable .zip. Acoording to the stats, it was downloaded about 35 times last month, so... Smile

Understandable, but like I said, it also depends on the size of the website. People forget about the resources being used, got now for example Let's Encrypt as a 'free' option for SSL, so there is an actual secure connection. Downside of this is, incompability with older browsers. Received reports of blank pages and such. Enhacing the visitor's experience comes down with a price and sacrifices have to be made from time to time.

Yup... I am also investigating SSL at the moment. Considering moving it to external hosting...

I'm using a PHP download manager script, so there are no direct links to my downloadable files to prevent leeching. It's quite effective. Right now my site(s) generates 30~40Gb traffic a month, but since I've got a 5Tb limit there is no need to block leechers. I do auto-block users that tries to brute-force my webservices using Fail2Ban. I choose to do a permanent IP ban. Mainly those are Russian, Chinese and Brazilian IP's

Funny how no-one complains about 'gamestats' now. Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Have there been complaints about that? I just do this to spam my site of course Wink but besides that, I am just a stats-nerd. When I bought solarpanels for my house, I spent quite some extra money to be able to log each panel and to get more data which I could store in graphs, etc Smile
For this reason I also installed Google Analytics on File-Hunter.com recently. Quite funny what kind of information you can get from it. Of course you have all the standard stuff like country, provider, language, browser, os stuff, etc... But also a lot of demographics like gender, age, interests, how long people stay on certain pages, etc... quite interesting stuff actually.

Many years ago, snout suggested gamestats, based on emulator usage. Purely because of stats, just to see which games would be the most popular ones. Well, this suggestion was followed by a shitstorm of conspiracies, including assumed bad-asses hacking openmsx executables and 'activating' such a feature and spreading that version. The idea was never heard of again. And now you're doing nearly the same thing, and everyone appears to be fine with it. That's funny. Wink
