OpenBSD - Cooking FTP with WGET

Here's little tip about the coexist of OpenBSD ftp client and wget, if you are downloading files using OpenBSD ftp client, and there you get connection breaks half way you downloading the files and leaving the smaller chunks of incomplete files in your system, you can actually use wget to resume the connection and continue downloading the incomplete files. Just use wget -c and you are done.

With wget you won't feel shit when you have intermittent connection that offered by your ISP.

Cheers :)

I always use wget instead of the default ftp client on Unix systems. It comes with most Linux distros, and on BSDs it's just a pkg_add away. :) This is HungSquirrel from BSDForums...nice blog!
