Kalispera npap ... try these packages:
and maybe kget
might be the type of programm you are looking for. gwget
is a front-end for wget
, so you can avoid the command line if you want or need to. gftp
is a FTP program which can handle SSH and other connection types too, plus it has some resume features.

I thought that was the purpose of it?
Of course, drinking it in cold Switzerland and dilluted with good amounts of water is a different thing than drinking it in a hot Greek summer
Is this similar to Metaxa
? That stuff once killed me
And so did Retsina
, and so did Mavro Daphne
, and Makedonikos
, and some other fine wines whose names I forgot. The best I ever had was self-made by an old peasant I once met in the middle of some island's wilderness, pretty far away from any tourist zone. My rented car had broken down, I couldn't go nowhere. This old guy picked me up, invited me into the shades of his tiny little house. I didn't speak one word of Greek, and he didn't speak anything else but Greek. No problem though, after a few glasses of his self-made wine and tons of Metaxa (guessing from the taste and color) we came to a perfect understanding
