Nils gave me an instruction using wget, but I did not have all the 
information I needed to execute his instruction.  Nonetheless, when I 
tried using the information I had, I remember a comment about my 
computer not having the capability with wget.  I am not sure, because I 
failed for other reasons, but your mention of wget in this email 
prompted a memory.  I use Kubuntu 64bit KDE Jaunty Alpha 6 if it makes a 
difference when using wget.
