Yep, I was using wget in conjunction with a browser, but there was a
funny in that every time it finished downloading something, it'd
immediately restart the download (which was irritating in the extreme).
I have no idea why it was doing that, though.

Also there are some things I have to download as ascii (actually
translate EBCDIC to ASCII) and others that need to be binary, so I
started looking for alternatives.
