I looked at the pinned software thread but I didn't notice a piece of software that seems to do what I would like to do.  I'm sure it's just out of my ignorance but here is what I'd like to do.

archive.org used to let you download an entire show via a zip file.  Not anymore.  One file at a time.  Is there a software app. that will let me pick all the files, place them in a que and download them one at a time.  This way I can walk away and come back to find all of the files downloaded to my PC.

There are two small catches.  I download from a machine that I do not have admin rights to.  So the software would have to install on the PC w/o requiring admin rights.  Also, bit torrent is NOT and option.

Does such an animal exist?  Or am I stuck at downloading one or two files at a time.

If Firefox is on your machine, you could try the "DownThemAll" plugin. Dunno if you need admin rights to install a plugin but that may be your best bet. Otherwise you'd need an FTP client with a queueing feature, and if you can't install a FF plugin on that machine, I doubt you can install an FTP client...

If you're willing to FTP, SmartFTP will do the trick (or any other decent FTP client).  There are also a whole slew of download managers that will allow you to copy/paste the FLAC URLs and then queue them up for download.  And finally, if you're using IE, I believe there's a way to defeat the simultaneous download limitation, but I forget how to do it at the moment.

Actually it seems like you can still download an entire show if there is a link on the left that says lossless.  I just did it last night to get a Everyone Orchestra show from back in March.

The problem is that once you downloaded the big zip it did not just include the lossless (FLAC) version of the show.  It included every available format.  So I had downloaded the FLAC, OOG, VBR, and MP3 all in one file.  ???

This is true for shows that were uploaded with the old system, but for uploads on the new system (since early May, I think) it doesn't apply. They're working on fixing the full show zips but they've temporarily disabled them until they figure it out because otherwise it's a tremendous waste of space and resources.
