Download a bunch of papers from a journal

Say you want to download a bunch of pdf files from a webpage. You want to do this remotely over ssh so those cool firefox extensions are our of the question. Use wget. For example:

tsocks wget -r -l1 -t1 -N -A.pdf -erobots=off http://www.springerlink.com/content/x49g43t85772/ 

Does the job.
