(sorry for the OT but I really don't know of a better
place for my enquiry. Really)

I'm looking for a little program to help me download
files across extremely unreliable links and/or
unstable systems. I'd like something to keep trying
until the file is downloaded, or until h3ll freezes

Since the link and the downloading workstation
(FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-pX) are unstable (for instance,
unplanned power failures) the proggy should
automatically resume the transfer on reboot. I think
that rules out wget since I need something

Do you guys & gals know of such a beast?
