Just a little tip to add to Dingo's post.

If you plan to download a file in pieces with the wget -c (continue)
switch, you can echo the command to a text file, in the same directory
as your download.

Doing this saves your full URL, which is hard to remember later, and
you don't have to look for it again.

echo wget -c actual_URL > filename_of_choice

Verify it was written properly as you please with this command:

cat filename_of_choice

Use yer noggin and don't overwrite an existing file with
> as that is what will happen of course.
>> will append an already existing file, but
appending is not what we are striving to do, unless by intent.

you can start and restart your download by running this command:

. filename_of_choice
