How about this: A simple POSIX compliant shell script. I tested it with both GNU and busybox versions of wget and in bash and ash. It opens a connection every 10 seconds and exits when a connection is established. It informs the user that the website is up by displaying a message box using zenity framework. Alternatively, instead of using zenity it ...

Tooska Farsi OCR is a web-based OCR, which uses modern learning techniques to boost accuracy on the Farsi language (Disclaimer: I'm on Tooska's development team).

Go with Wordpress and host it on your own site (not at wordPress.com). Your provider should tell you how to create a MySQL database for it. The most 'difficult' part may be finding a responsive* theme that you like. You may have to experiment with several. If you find a good one that is not free, just pay for it. That's much less hassle than insisting on a ...

They Wayback Machine has an JSON based API available as well as Memento protocol and some deeper capture data - https://archive.org/help/wayback_api.php PHP is trivial to learn, does GET and POST requests with native functions or curl support, and has easy json parsing to associative arrays.

You can't, because most servers won't share everything they have (e.g., my website won't give you its password file), and many don't even provide a way to list everything they'll share. The closest you can get in general is to use a web crawler that tries to find everything on a website by following links. Try, for example, wget with the --mirror option.

Have you checked out Rabb.it? It's a browser based app that lets you create a "Room" where other people can join and all view and interact with a virtualized Firefox browser. The browser is able to accept mouse and keyboard inputs, and everyone sees the same video stream of the virtual browser. It's free and just requires you to set up an account.

You could create one or sevaral "heatmap" layers from your processed data. This layer then gets shown when the user has a birds-eye view (focuses on, say, the entire earth), but the "heatmap" eventually gets replaced with specific markers for the point data only when the user zoomed in and has chosen a smaller region of interest. You could also use "...

If you are lucky, you can use the Document.lastModified Javascript function which should be available in most browsers. If the page is dynamically generated (IE: Generated just for your browsing) then it will show the the time/date when you loaded the page, which is pretty useless to you. However, if it is a static HTML page, it will show the last modified ...
