1. This is a paid access website for which I have access. If you need to examine the website, contact me privately and time limited access will be provided for you to have a look around.
2. This end product must be a PHP command line script that must work from a DOS/Windows environment. It can use wget for the actual downloading – that’s available on Windows as a binary.
