    I wrote a PERL script awhile back that connects to celestrak and
    downloads specified files without having to use a browser.  It only
    takes a few seconds.  It's currently set up to download visual.txt and
    amateur.txt.  I can send it to you as/is, or modify it for the files you
    want.  The mod is easy if you want to do it yourself.  It requires that
    you have PERL 5 on your system, but if you don't, I can send you a
    self-extracting file for that.  I also have one that downloads from Mike's web site and unzips it to Mccants.tle.  Let me
    know if you want either or both of these.
