        First get permission from the site that you intend to mirror.
        NB it is very unlikely that you will get permission if there is
        any banner advertising on the pages and very unlikely that such
        pages would be cacheable in a cache configured to conform to the
        HTTP protocol.

        If you get permission, use wget to do dummy fetches each night.

        In this particular case, a better approach is almost certainly
        to negotiate to become an official Tucows mirror.
