Ahhh... just when you'd forgotten the fact that an application
can be boring, text-mode, quiet and *reliable* as all hell :-)
Seriously : for anyone who's ever tried downloading stuff and been
reduced to tears by dropped connections or stalled downloads,
wget is the perfect solution.
Simple syntax, reliable, configurable and powerful. One of it's
major features is the resume feature : it'll just start downloading
again at the end of the file where the last session left off.
During a particularly nasty session during which Tinet disconnected
me 3 times, I nonetheless managed to get Netscape 4.6 downloaded
and installed without a hitch.
This has been an unpaid testament on behalf of a satisfied customer.
Who didn't have to pay anything, of course :-)
