My sig is referring to avoiding petty arguments with sad, foolish, little people like the argument you're trying to create right now. I appreciate the help, baavgai. I'm unsubscribing from this thread now.

If you are in touch with the people that house the data you might see if they have a FTP server you can access to retrieve the data. It appears that there is a FTP server there but you would probably need an account to access this server.

That's what you were told hours ago.

I'd suggest you try the "send email and ask the site owner" approach BEFORE you go into writing scripts with curl or suchlike tools.
