save (Golden Egg)
Can't stand it when you try downloading a file or clip but it plays instead. I got tired of retyping this echo command in every time I wanted to download a ".mov", so here you go! SYNTAX save [link to file] Takes your link and echos a hyperlink in which you can right click to save the target. Jake magicjj jjefferydesign.com
