|Javi's gonna have my head for such stupid workaround

Here's my story.
1. My laptop's USB port is acting funky. Recently, it's neglecting to transfer files entirely, often truncating them regardless of their size.
2. The normal workaround would be to find out if there's a *NIX command similar to wget -c url, but for local files. As I haven't found one, I'm going for a rather dumb workaround.
3. First, I install a fresh copy of XAMMP and start the services.
4. Then, I'll access the virtual directory with firefox, copy the generated links, and paste them on wget to look like wget -c http://localhost/mari/file.avi and see if it resumes.
Yeah, it is pretty lame. XD
To compensate for the technobabble above, here's a SNL skit stolen from beau99.
