There is a program called Web Devil that grabs whole folders, images etc.
Just punch in a URL and it goes to work.

May want to try that, and there are several others that I have seen.
However, some servers will not allow programs like this to grab anything,
so whether the above one would work for you is a guess.

Please feel free to send me your winners though. The "Futures" that is.
Well, software too. :)
