Zitat von Eric Davelaar <address@hidden>:

I have been using the command: 'wget -r -N
http://static.die.net/earth/mercator/1600.jpg' to change the background
on my computers hourly but for the last couple of weeks the downloaded
file does not display. When trying to open the file directly I get the
following error:
        Could not load image '1600.jpg'
        Error interpreting JPEG image file (Not a JPEG file: starts with
0x47 0x49)

Seems the site doesn't like download programs like wget and sends you just an empty GIF file.

"Disguising" as a browser helps, e.g.:

wget -U mozilla  .....
