Downloading HTTP in off-peak
I want to write a quick and dirty blog post to tell you a little solution on downloading HTTP files in your off-peak usage using linux.
The at daemon is required to be running first, so on debian or ubuntu
Then downloading your file at an off-peak time (4am for me) is as simple as
echo “wget –c http://ubuntu.virginmedia.com/releases//maverick/ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso” | at 04:00
Simple hey 😄
