* As README states:
"Note that the filename of the LimeWireOther.zip file does *not* change

verifying md5sums; if they don't match, a newer version might have been

* To get a file from a https server (at least with fglrx-* https
server) you can make two things:

1).- Download a $FILE with the bundle of certificate authorities
("CA") (from wget(1)) and pass it  to wget with
"--ca-certificate=$FILE". You can get this $FILE from
http://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html, download "cacert.pem" into
fglrx-driver directory(for example) and execute wget as:

$ wget --ca-certificate="cacert.pem"

2).- Also, you can just execute wget as:

$ wget --no-check-certificate

* BTW and JFYI you can also use:

$ wget "http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-8-7-x86.x86_64.run"

* This way i have found it today ;-)
