This was actually required to utilize efs2tar, which is a utility which allows an SGI "efs" file-system CDROM to be turned into a tarball for later exploitation since you can't mount an ISO on Irix and nothing else can mount it either, except Irix, with a SCSI CDROM drive.

Also? wget -e robots=off to pull down entire tardift repositories which have a robots.txt wget bot blocker. This is a beautiful thing.

wget -e robots=off \
