Subject: wget downloads on geeklog.net ?

Hi,

I think geeklog.net is blocking the "wget" user agent for security reasons.

Is there any chance you could allow wget for the Downloads area? I am frequently on a web server with SSH command-line only and would love to be able to

# wget <URL_to_new_geeklog_download>

instead of having to download to a PC and upload back to my web server.

This makes a difference when I am SSH'd into a web server from my Droid.

Thanks!

More like "stupid script kiddies" but yes, we're blocking it.

wget has an option to set another user agent string. Either use that or try curl.

wget -U " " <URL>

seems to work.


Thanks!
