As reported, the link is currently dead (Database connection error), so I post the original text here:
The msys shell that comes with a Windows install of Git has curl, which is an awesome little utility, but sometimes you want access to wget. The MinGW project on SourceForge has a build of wget ported to work with MinGW/MSys: download this archive, create a folder called
/binin your home directory, and extract
~/binshould be in your MSys PATH (at least it was for me), this should let you run
wgetfrom any directory when using Git Bash.

Because sometimes you do need your wget 😉 Thanks Adam!
