HowTos

For quite some time I've been looking for a tool to download a list of files (stored in a text file) at a certain time and, if possible, shutdown after completion. Unfortunately there is no know Linux-application that can perform these tasks. Then I got the idea to combine the use of Wget with that of a scheduler.
