wget for Windows

If you are stranded on a Windows machine and you need to do a wget, you will be horrified to discover that there is not such tool.
Here they show how to use PowerShell to emulate the command.
For me, this simple code worked:
run PowerShell,

Function Get-Webclient ($url, $out) {
 $request = New-Object System.Net.WebCLient
 $request.DownloadFile($url, $out)

Get-Webclient "" "C:\tmp\Foo3.txt"

Windows is so pathetic that if I were a Microsoft developer I would pretend I work serving fries in a Mac Donald to avoid being shunned by my neighbors...
