Hi Julian,

These work fine, but I think I may have given you a bum steer about the 
default value that $wget_location should have.  I gave you my location, 
but I think for most Linux distros the location would be: /usr/bin/wget

It might more sense to have the default set to that and let weirdos like 
me make the changes rather than have the majority of users having to 
make changes...
