On which operating system would you want to do this? Under UNIX it's
fairly trivial. You can setup a simple cron job to this using either the
text based web browser "lynx" or the infinitely useful tool "mget".

If you're running one of the Linux distributions, FreeBSD, NetBSD, or
OpenBSD, they will include "lynx" and "mget" as installable packages.
On other UNIX systems you'll have to download their source and compile
