Bulk download from the packet archive?

Is there a way to download all the packets from http://quizbowlpackets.com/ without having to click each link manually?

If you're familiar with Linux/command line programs, I'd look into mirroring websites using wget (but be respectful and rate limit the process). If not, there might be a graphical interface you can use if you search around.
