Thanks, everyone, for the answers!  Especially David for taking the time
to explain wget.  I successfully retrieved the workshop files.

Much appreciated!

Hi, "wget" is a Linux/Unix command line program, for downloading
files. You can get a Windows binary version here:

Rename the file to "wget.exe" and put it in the directory "C:/WINDOWS"

To test if its installed, open a command prompt and type:
wget -h | more

Then to retrieve the files after you install, use the "cd" command to
change directories to the place where you want to download the files.
Then type the command that Frank listed into a command line prompt (or
try the command below**):
wget --mirror --no-parent https://www.cs.tcd.ie/~wardn1/PD_workshop/

**Try this command, Frank's version was giving me a certificate error.
The following should work instead (all on one line):
wget --mirror --no-parent --no-check-certificate

*** From the webpage documentation ***

wget is a command line program. You start it from the command prompt,
either command.com in Windows 9x/Me or cmd.exe in Windows 2000/XP. The
command prompt can be found in the Start Menu (Accessories).

wget.exe must be placed in your path (e.g. c:\windows)


Hope this helps!
