Cross-platform, ad hoc, recursive file transfer via HTTP #

Recursively copy desired_dir located on server to current directory on client without having to fool around with usernames, passwords, config files, FTP, NetBIOS, Bonjour, etc:

On server: cd desired_dir && python -m SimpleHTTPServer

On client: wget -r -np http://server_ip_address:8000/
