Journal Porn Whitelist's Journal: 47 meg of ... um ... something. 1

I'm not going to comment on what this is - it's not up to me to judge. That's why it's filed under "X".

Here's the perl script:


for ($i=1; $i <=48; $i++) {
for ($j=1; $j <=16; $j++) {
$url = "";
if($i<10) {$url = $url . '0'; }
$url = $url . $i . '/big_';
if ($j<10) {$url = $url . '0'; }

`wget -r $url`;

Total to date: 3.267 gigs

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
