comment Download all files with some strings in their names
Thanks. I see. But with -A, it will download everything, and remove those files not satisfy -A. That seems to take forever to finish running. Anyway not to spend time on files not needed?

comment Download all files with some strings in their names
Thanks. (1) What if I also would like to download the webpage itself besides those pdf files? (2) also it seems that -A will still download other files not ended in 2up.pdf and then remove them, so it seems to take very long to run to finish. Is it possible not to spend time on files not needed?

comment A black thing falls out of the USB port of my laptop
@sawdust: Thanks. "You have one remaining USB port on that T400; consider using a short USB extension cable (A-male to A-female)." Do you mean that keep a extension cable connected to my laptop's only working usb port, in order to reduce the plug in and out to and from the port?

comment Do the temperatures indicate my laptop healthy?
Without cpu freq scaling, the max is achieved by CPU. I guess "ATI graphics module" is GPU?

comment Do the temperatures indicate my laptop healthy?
(1) How high temperatures will I need to worry about? (2) the reported temperatures are when I am opening 100 tabs in chrome browser now. They are achieved when I use a cooler and scale the cpu frequency to the lowest 0.8GHz. WIhtout a cooler, the highest temperature will be over 80 celcius. If further without cpu freq scaling, the highest can be 90 and 100 celcius.

comment A black thing falls out of the USB port of my laptop
@BigChris: By "you can replace it", do you mean replace the receotacles, or the laptop? If the former, how can I replace it, by buying new recptors and diy, or by going to a repair shop?

comment A black thing falls out of the USB port of my laptop
@sawdust: although my laptop was purchases since 2009, it hadn't have that problem, until last month my new cooler's plug suck the black things out of two recpetacles. Is it reasonable to ask for redemption from the cooler's seller or manufacturer?
