    Dunno how it works, but I have a webpage that can do a neat thing, simple though, and when I save it and upload it myself it doesn't work (no image files, but I don't know if the script was hosted somewhere else)

    I can't contact the creator, but I know he did it for the kicks, and wouldn't care if I used his script, the only thing I don't know (totally java ignorant, I admit) is whether in case I cannot find a way to contact him, and the domain is now parked and not working, is it possible to recover (I can see it when I look at the source code, but don't know if I'm looking at the right thing) the script that does a simple query after an input, from a page I have saved on my disk from the time the site was active?

    You can pm me also if you understand what I'm talking about and want to help, I think if ti's doable, it should be a piece of cake for someone who knows what they're doing.

    lol! Seriously :confused::p

    A guy made a quick webpage and showed it to us on some local social site. You would put an info about a picture and the page would give you more info about it. I saved the page to computer back then. The site is not live anymore, but I wonder if it is possible to use the page I have saved on my hard drive and recover the script from it in order to implement it on my page or blog.

    If the site was running a server-side script (php, asp, etc..) and you tried to save it from your computer it wont work. Server-side scripts run on the server before they are ever sent to the client, so your computer never sees the code. You would have to download the scripts directly from the server through ftp.

    Client-side scripts (javascript) can be be saved.
