You're an Idiot, Dent.

My sister is having issues with her student loans through Wells Fargo. She has two student loans which appear on the same statement each month -- but Wells Fargo only applies her payment to one loan, and the other loan becomes delinquent. She's been on the phone with them every month for the past 4-5 months regarding this, but it keeps happening. Who has enough muscle to fix this? [more inside]

Very basic Curl question

Very stupid question. Can I use Curl to download every image in a directory? (some idiot, knowing we needed 100+ images, put them in some web gallery rather than on an FTP server and I'm stuck on a Mac here) How?
