This has bugged me for a while but as with most things it’s easy when you know how.
First setup a cron job with wget
0 */6 * * * wget -A torrent -r -l 1 ewheel.democracynow.org
This will go an check for new torrents every 6 hours at ewheel.democracynow.org and place them in a directory of the same name in your home directory.
info: -r is recursively. -l is a small L as in go down one level. i.e only drill down one directory to search for the torrent file.
