 There are tools designed to do exactly this.  I use lftp usually for
 this kind of thing, but wget seems to be almost as powerful.  There
 was a util posted on freshmeat a few weeks ago that advertised itself
 as a genuine commandline lynx-esque thing -- but I'll be buggered
 if I can find it now.  Searches on the net for words like 'http get
 command line' are rarely a satisfying experience.  But I did find
 'snarf', which seems to be YA similar tool.

 If you'd attended the AGM, you'd know that the brick is still running.

 I'm sure the minutes & exec announcements will be posted shortly.
