Downloading 8BitChip (Petari) games

Hi,
I finaly have time to test games on my Falcon030 but I am not sure how to download 1179 games!
To download one game I need around 8 second but it is very tedious work.

Is it possible to download them in bundle, or should I try wget? :)

Br!

Petari:
I really don't see why should someone DL lot of games at once.  DL those who plan to test, play in next days. Surely will be not able to even start for short more than 100 in one day.
And there happen updates often, so you may miss them if DL all at once.

Anemos:
it is very tedious work?
thinks the Petari work to make all thats..

kovacm:
Why to make easy when it can be complicated ;) just jooking :)

It is easy for me to download 1000 games, take out CF card from Falcon, put it in Mac and transfer 1000 games and return CF card to Falcon.
It is better than take out CF card from Falcon for every e.g. 100 games...

I use wget and got copy from Petari web server.

I also thinking how to distribute Atari software from my own web site to others... it would by cool if Atari could have some sort of APT :)
as I read, CosmosEx can download ST floppy images directly from some web site... that is cool but it would be more cool to be able to choose “repositorium”, like this Petari one...

And here we can see where the real problem is: people care only how to get easy big number of 'goodies' with minimal effort. I needed to add special page about need for feedback, more testing. That helped just little. I getting now about 2-3 e-mail per month with it. What is great, but far from enough.  Look other thread here, where I asked for testing on TT

We really should care more about quality instead quantity.
