Cyberpunkreview.com is a Web site that reviews cyberpunk films, music, art, games and more.
The site doesn't appear to be inactive. A two month or so hiatus between October and December, but other than that, in good shape. It used to be host to a very popular forum for cyberpunks at http://cyberpunkreview.com/forums/index.php but they recently moved over to a different domain http://cyberpunkforums.com/ that is much more active. I have a penchant for anything cyberpunk and will keep an eye on the site.
It looks like a typical Wordpress instance. Not sure if we have a standard procedure for scraping them or not. Aggroskater 08:10, 19 March 2012 (EDT)
Currently in the process of mirroring with the following command set:
$ wget https://raw.github.com/ArchiveTeam/fortunecity/master/get-wget-warc.sh $ chmod 0755 get-wget-warc.sh $ ./get-wget-warc.sh $ ./wget-warc --no-parent --no-clobber --html-extension --recursive --convert-links --page-requisites -e robots=off -w 5 --random-wait --warc-file=cpr http://cyberpunkreview.com/
Please email me or contact me in the #archiveteam channel if there's a better way of doing this. I've basically just taken the guideline from the Software page and applied it to alard's wget build with warc. The larger projects seem to have a more systematic way of grabbing terabytes worth of data. Since this is a relatively small site, I don't know if that's necessary or not. --Aggroskater 06:58, 13 April 2012 (EDT)

Mirror complete. Appears fully operational on my machine. Warc gz is 385 megabytes in size. What's next? --Aggroskater 02:54, 20 April 2012 (EDT)
Yeah... so it seems the wordpress site is at www.cyberpunkreview.com and not just cyberpunkreview.com. Running the following to grab the blog itself. Shouldn't take nearly as long. The /wiki and /forums work great from the first run though.
./wget-warc --no-parent --no-clobber --html-extension --recursive --convert-links --page-requisites --exclude-directories=wiki,forums -e robots=off -w 2 --random-wait --warc-file=cpr-wp-fix http://www.cyberpunkreview.com/
Sunday April 22 2012 Update
Running into problems downloading the wordpress portion. Wget keeps segfaulting when converting links. Managed to narrow down a replication case:
$ wget https://raw.github.com/ArchiveTeam/fortunecity/master/get-wget-warc.sh $ chmod 0755 get-wget-warc.sh $ sed -i 's/rm -rf \$TARFILE \$TARDIR\///g' get-wget-warc.sh $ sed -i 's/.\/configure/CFLAGS="-g" .\/configure/' get-wget-warc.sh $ ./get-wget-warc.sh $ cd wget-1.13.4-2582/src $ gdb ./wget ...

Oh goody. Null pointers. Or at least, I think that's what I'm looking at. Not sure what to do from here. --Aggroskater 19:47, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
Wednesday June 6 2012 Update
I ended up submitting a bug report and got a fix back. Open source is awesome :D
I'll most likely be mirroring the wordpress blog some time this weekend. The wiki and the forums are both static content with no changes in the past months.
Tuesday July 2 2013 Update
No input file specified.
Well that's not good. Looks like the site's been down for a week or two at least. This link at cyberpunkforums.com has some discussion. So far, no one's been able to get a hold of the domain registrant/website owner.
Good thing I still have my scrapes. They're not in the best of condition and could do with some postprocessing, but they have the corresponding WARCs and browsing locally from the main index.php or index.html file works pretty damn well for all three components of the site: Wordpress blog, Mediawiki wiki, PHPBB (I think?) forum.
Friday July 5 2013 Update
Aaaaaaand we're back :) Got in touch with the hosting company. Looks like there was a technical issue on their end that got patched up. I'll proceed to do a more thorough scrape with reasonable delays between requests. --Aggroskater 19:34, 5 July 2013 (EDT)
August 2019 Mirror
Mirror was done on August 2019, should keep an eye on the site for future updates.
