I use a proxy program called wwwoffle on my Linux box. It's mainly a
dial-up proxy system and due to this it keeps a copy of all traffic that
goes through it (http and ftp only). You just have to :

lynx http://localhost:8080/

to get at all the info. Or just use it as any other proxy. Remember to set
up Netscape and lynx to use for your http_proxy &

Get a copy from <URL:>

Plus they have a great version of mine sweeper (using squares, hexagons or
triangles) called XBomb.
