been away from scripting too long to have an answer for a friend who asks
how to automate downloading a file named, for instance


from the page


Zip file name will only change in the month and year.

Once downloaded to the desired location, it needs to be unzipped

Any pointers on the simplest way to make this happen automatically would be
appreciated. This will all probably happen on a Windows network behind
firewalls and such, but almost any technology can be introduced if it
ultimately makes this work.
