I'm sure this has been done many times before but the search results here aren't returning anything. Anybody posted a script that just downloads the zip files from the data site? I've been trying to do it in mechanise but its taking longer than it should to get it working so just looking to see if anyone else has it done already.

Yes and No...if you DON'T login, you can scrape unlimited data but it won't be "live" data. It is cached for at least 1 minute. I would be cautious, however as it won't take them long to match up your ip address to your betfair account and then start taking data request charges...if you break the data limits. Not sure what the limits are nowadays but it used to be 20 refreshes per second...
