Need to set up an automatic download because humans are forgetful and lazy.

We've got to pull a file overnight every weekday from a website where the data is posted. The site itself requires a login/password, and then once you're in, you get a table with the most recent file being the same element on top.
This is an unusual one for us as every other place we download data of this nature from provides us an sftp site to pull it from, but these guys don't. They know we are going to automate the process and they're fine with that, but also they're also taking the "it's good enough for everyone else" position and not willing to help automate it.
