    Hi hrolson,

    in the first suggestion :
    --recursive is -r
    --convert-links is -k

    in my suggestion :
    the -m is for "--mirror" and include all the following option "-r -N -l inf --no-remove-listing"
    so download the full site
    the -E convert all the extension in .html and reconnect internal link so you
    have a downloaded site "browseable" in local without language processor.
    this is usefull if the site use php, asp or other
