So, I wanted to grab a SWF file off a web server. Save-page-as from Firefox wasn't really working perfectly. Out of habit, I opened up a console and used wget to grab the file. The file started downloading. All was good.

Then I realized that my laptop was running Windows XP. Wait a second, wget? On Windows XP? In PATH? I must have installed it a long time ago and forgotten about it. Thank goodness for cross-platform GNU tools. wget is awesome.
