    Jay Respler asked:  
    "So why not just limit the number of bulk downloads 
    per user per day?  Wouldn't that be simpler?"
    It sure seems that way to me!  If User 297324982835 
    is known to the system every time he logs in and 
    requests a download, it sure seems simple for the 
    server to count how many times that user does that 
    action and then enforce some sort of usage limits 
    on him.
    So, anyway, since I'm not a programmer, I'm going 
    to be totally dependent on someone/anyone else to 
    help me to be able to get the elements that I need.  
    Once per day (at most, almost exclusively on 
    good-weather days) I get the three-line bulk file.  
    So the script or program or command-line or whatever 
    that I will need would get that result for me:  the 
    bulk file, once per day at most.  I would be happy 
    to "run" the request manually, be it by copying-and-
    pasting a URL into the browser, or whatever.
