comment How do I create an MBR on a USB stick using DD command line tool
I tested it, it seemed to work, the boot sector is found, but it warns of 'missing operating system'. I am not sure if that is a problem with the image I used, but I doubt it. Going to play with this a little more though since it did appear to write the boot sector properly.

This failed. I was aware of the settings depicted in your screenshots but after doing this first, then DD, the resulting image was still not finding a boot sector. The DD command appears to trash whatever the disk util does anyway, it seems like it is writing in some very low level raw mode. I wish this worked but honestly it didn't, and its stupid that disk util doesn't support .iso images for restore.

comment How do you use WGET to mirror a site 1 level deep, recovering JS, CSS resources including CSS images?
None of the wget solutions worked for me. My Tangent Solution is the best method to achieve this kind of site saving. However, I have seen it fail on very complicated pages like apple.com, presumably because a lot of the resource paths are dynamically generated by executing javascript, some not right away but during some kind of ajax execution.
