Wow, this works great. The byte counter is pausing sometimes for half a
minute or so, but the stuff gets transferred.
(BTW, is it 'transferred' or is it (as lynx says) 'transfered'?)
I don't know what magic is involved here, but there is only one little
confusing thing to mention. Most entries are mentioned to be 00xx.gif .
I move the bar on such an entry, then I press <return>. This gives me a
screen of text with the word 'text' highlighted as the only possible choice.
I press <return> again and now it says that the screen cannot be displayed
on my terminal. It offers nicely the possibility to download this file.
Pressing the 'd' shows the miraculous result: the file arrives on my
machine. It puzzles me why these files are indicated by the word 'text'.

Regards, Wim.
