wget -r -A "phrack*.tar.gz"

Seems as if nobody tested the commands. There is no phrack67.tar.gz. Besides that none of the solutions is what I'd call fast; the curl one took 1 minute 14.35 seconds on my system. aria2c is much faster. I used the somewhat evil and ugly aria2 call aria2c -D -P -Z -s 5 -j 45 --file-allocation=none --enable-http-keep-alive=true --enable-http-pipelining=true[1-66].tar.gz to perform the download in 29.02 seconds.

"Seems as if nobody tested the commands. There is no phrack67.tar.gz." Look at the range again in my loop: (I actually did test this and it works fine, but I do like petrohs solution better, no offense.) for ((i=1; i {i} Will never be set to 67 because ${i} has to be less than 67.
