cURL is your buddy

Fetch and other FTP apps are sooo slow for downloading images. to download images fast, use cURL from the command line. Just open up Terminal.app, navigate to the directory you want the stuff to be downloaded into then type
curl -O http://yourwebsite.com/directory/image01.jpg
. You can even get all 99 images by using brackets around a range of numbers, as in
curl -O http://yourwebsite.com/directory/image[01-99].jpg
. Type
man curl
for the details. I think it comes preinstalled in Mac OS X 10.3.*.
