a lot of data. Not being a domain expert, I can't judge its value or importance.

Logging as potentially a TODO.

    I've started a wget run here. ASAP, I'll try to estimate how large it is, in case it's so big as to cause problems.

    The current run will be massively incomplete; one needs to log in. I might try to do that tomorrow.

    The help page didn't seem to quite do the job. I was collecting all but the data sets. So, I've dropped back to a manual option: 1) I log in and shop for data, 2) I request it. 3) They prepare the data in a tar file on a ftp site; it'll be there for 5 days 4) they send me an email pointing to the data (and related stuff, too, which is nice). 5) I take the email and copy/paste it into a file 6) I run a script on it which sucks down the data and the related stuff. 7) done, and repeat until complete.

    currently, I have early versions of the scripts working. Work is in pub04:/var/local/gpk/tmp and /var/local/gpk/ .

    It seemed to work once, the be rejected. Weird. The manual method also seems stymied, at least for the weekend. Downloads of a few gigabytes are "unually large" and the email indicates that they may need manual approval, which didn't happen between last night (Friday) and this morning (Saturday).

    They did not supply the data, so far as I can tell, for whatever reason.

    I don't think this is working.
