Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog


BTW, for people who have problems downloading from AOM, you can just copy the links into a text file, and run:

for LINE in `cat linkfile.txt` ; do wget $LINE ; done

I believe wget is standard on Mac OS X, so this should work well. You don't have to be logged in to download the files; I assume the links are personalized in some fashion.

Can you explain that a little further? Having problems downloading from AOM with Mac OSX.

Please? thanks!

Well, I'm not sure what else to say... I think you can use SimpleText to make a text file with all the URLs. Save it to your desktop, then open the Terminal, which you can find in Applications:Utilities, and type at the command line:

cd Desktop
for LINE in `cat linkfile.txt` ; do wget $LINE ; done

And it'll just download them all.

You need to get a program like Three Ten or iGetter to download with a Mac.
