The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy

Hey, why bother paying to see the crappy Hollywood version when someone has kindly provided the source of the books for free on their website.

Those of you with Linux/Cygwin/MacOS X, simply execute the following bash script to download your free copy of the 5 part Hitchhikers Trilogy.

#!/bin/bash


for ((i =1; i != 6; ++i))
{
wget http://flag.blackened.net/dinsdale/dna/book$i.html
}

  • You could also download a copy of the original bbc radio series of the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy.

    Its directly recorded from the radio in London in the 70's and features music by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and the voice of Peter Jones as the book.

    The zipped audio files are available here.

    I also have a page of my favourite Douglas Adams quotes.
